It also depends on where you're sailing, when you're sailing and what kind of boat you're on.
If you're sailing a J/24 in Boston, in October, proper foul weather gear is a necessity—otherwise, you're risking hypothermia and frostbite.
If you're sailing a 50' Lagoon catamaran, in August in the caribbean, then a bathing suit is probably the best gear to have.
The OP says it will be used for daysailing, but I know that in New England at least, day sailing can have some pretty variable conditions over the course of a day, and the weather forecasters are often wrong.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
