Hmmm...another good reason, you never know what can happen on the high seas.

Maybe "Dead Calm" would have been a shorter movie...if only for an underwire.

My bras are so padded they qualify as a PFD. No free range here, I hate being called "sir".

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.

Ugh, none for me if I can avoid it. They leave such horrible tan lines!

But seriously, I agree with the previous poster that it can sometimes be cooler with than without.

For me - I'm not talking shirtless, I'm talking bra-less. For hot days I usually find a thin, white cotton tee-shirt to be the coolest choice.

Reminds me of a discussion on another board concerning sailing with fenders or bumpers out, we comfirmed that fenders no, but sailing with "bumpers" out was just fine!

Just be aware that cotton shirts, especially wet ones... provide little or no UV protection, and a really nasty sunburn can be the result. :

Sailing basics while at sea - "stow loose equipment". That goes for everybody and everything.
