Re: Clothing for sailing in cool or cold weather.

Take everything you have, add a ridiculous amount of fleece stuff, hand warmers and hats and gloves and skiing face protectors and... you'll still be cold. It's called payback for living in Hawaii and laughing at all of us pale bodies when we come visit you in paradise:-))

Re: Clothing for sailing in cool or cold weather.

I agree with layering. When I lived in BC, we'd often sail in full-body floation suits like this: Deluxe Anti-Exposure Coverall and Worksuit MS2175. Expensive, but they kept you warm and you sleep in them like a sleeping bag.

Re: Clothing for sailing in cool or cold weather.

Layers and layers of decent quality clothing works great. It does not need to be expensive Marine wear except for a decent mid level coat and maybe some bibs. I have a non-breathable heavy coat that I got at a reasonable cost. When you get into breathable fabrics it can get $$$$. With my layers I rarely use my heavy coat, just a decent wind breaker shell on the outside layer. When it really starts to get nasty then I just pop on the coat. Make sure the coat is one or two sizes larger due to the layers. Balaclava thermal headgear is great! Ski shops in off seasons have great pricing for that.

For coat and bibs I would hit up the boat shows on the last few days of the event, extra savings there.

Sorry you have to make the transition. I am trying to do the opposite, hopefully I'll get 'er done in the next few years.

Re: Clothing for sailing in cool or cold weather.

I don't like synthetics next to my skin, bought a set of silk pants and top from I think Cabelas. Not terribly expensive and does the job nicely, warmth wise.

Other than that Possum fur socks, gloves and beanie. Lovely.
