I don't do much winter sailing anymore,
I still have the original pair of sorels that I purchased in 1972, for winter camping.
( $40.00 back then) I have worn them every year since, only in snow or on ice, rarely on pavement. I have two sets of the removeable wool liners that can be washed in woolight. I have worn them in 50 below 0 F. and my feet have never been cold. You can remove the liners and wear them as slippers in the tent or boat. One of the best purchases in warmth and comfort I've ever made.
I have neoprene winter sailing gloves, Balaclavas keep your head and neck warm, I have poly underliners and wool.
My Old Peter Storm oiled wool sweater, is incredibly warm. I don't think they're made by storm anymore, The Barbour is probably a close likeness. If you can find some of the old dense wool navy sweaters at an army/navy store they are worth grabbing up.
And a good windbreaker.
I agree with the undergarment suggestions: silk, merino wool, etc for wicking moisture.
