Best kit/ clothes for dinghy sailing
Hi, I'm going to be joining a new sailing club soon and need to buy a completely new set of kit for dinghy sailing before I join. I can't borrow anything from the club, so I need a buoyancy aid, gloves, boots etc. So, what is the best I can buy for a maximum total of about £100 in the UK?
Also, is there a better option than a full wetsuit? I have previously just used a full wetsuit but they are very uncomfortable. Maybe a short wetsuit, long john wetsuit or wetsuit top and shorts... with a spray top? Is there a short wetsuit that can be used all year round when combined with the spray top and other such things? What's the best type/ arrangement of clothes to wear?
