I'm planning to sail around Aleutians and southern Alaska next summer. Does anybody have any good recommendations on stylish sailing attire? OK, forget stylish. How about WARM clothing?

A drysuit might be a very good idea... otherwise, fleece is a very good idea, along with high-tech underlayers to wick moisture away from the body, fleece to insulate, and then a shell to waterproof the whole mess.

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.

This month's Practical Sailor did a report of follies. May be worth looking it over before buying. Also Defender has some things on closeout.

Fleece in layers and a waterproof shell, definitely.
