You can save some money by shopping REI vs the clothing made for sailing. After blown out knees and etc forced me out of the mountains (skiing) I adapted my clothing for sailing. A good midweight synthetic base layer, polar fleece mid layer, and a breathable outer layer can be had for less than the cost of an expensive Gill outer shell. And still be very functional.
