Sorry, I should have been more clear in saying a sailing dry suit is something nice to have on particular days in particular venues on particular boats. There's certainly a place for them for the PNW, Northern California, and late of early season sailing on the Great Lakes or NE. That said OP, you'd be better off having regular foulies first that match the coldest/worse conditions you generally deal with. Second, I'd pick up a light weight smock for summer. After that, I'd entertain the idea of a dry suit for a venue and on a boat (or place on a boat) that makes it worth while having one in your closet.
