One thing we agreed on is that synthetic longjohns are a killer!

I have a few things posted too, as an habitual wintersailor:

Sail Delmarva: Winter Sailing

Every boat is different. Mine has a very dry and well protected cockpit, for example, so I put little emphisis on boots. On the other hand, I do carry a boot and glove-drier, for the reasons he gave. There is nothing like and endless supluy of dry clothing to keep spirits high.

(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")

"Well, I just climb up to them."

by Joe Brown, English rock climber
