Dry suites are great in the winter. Not so much when you get rained on in the spring, summer, or early fall. Then they're extremely hot, you sweat and don't dry out, then you're freezing again b/c the sweat is now cold and you're on night watch. Doing short buoy races, sure, suit up for a couple hours and stay dry. Anything longer, and it's swamp ass for sure.

I can strip off my jacket on the downwind legs, or just open the zipper to "vent" and control my body heat. Unless you're racing an F27, beach cat, or dingy, stick with foulies.
