Hi,
i really suffer from cold hands when sailing in the winter and often it gets so bad that i can hardly sail at all.  i'm currently using Rooster Aqua Pro gloves but they do not seem to be suited properly to really cold weather sailing.  Can anyone recommend a good pair of gloves for me to buy?  I'm really desperate! 
thanks,
PRINCE BUSTER

I wear surgical gloves under my gloves and try to keep my hands as dry as possible.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I use the DIY style yellow 'supa gloves'  which have very little warmth and just about survive with a pair of kooga G-flex neoprene rugby gloves underneith but unless grip is critical id expect you could find far warmer options

So do I and I think they work quite well.

I have herd that the 'Warm whne wet' Gloves are probably what you need. But I can remember who makes them as I don't actually have a pair myself (although I do want some)

Thank you sea badger.  I'll take a look at those gloves.  I'll probably buy some at the boat show.

I use the Magic Marine Dry Glove to sail the laser in the winter ... a bit clumsy but it's fine for the laser.

g'day,

if you have the chance, go to your local ski / mountaineering shop and purchase a pair of base layer glove liners. a great brand is marmot. also depending on budget, buy a pair of dry suit diving gloves in your size from a dive shop. these are sealed against water entry via a rubber seal. then from your local sailing shop get a pair of ordinary summer sailing gloves a size or two too big and put them over the dry suit gloves, which are in turn over your ski glove liners. your hands will be toasty then. the bulk may be an issue depending on the dry suit gloves. hope your hands get warmer soon.

cheers

I suffer from really really cold hands too. stops me sailing in the winter 

Don't buy gloves that are too tight. Keep them loose!

I think Rooster are looking into developing some warm gloves for cold hands!

Make sure your winter wetsuit isn't too tight restricting circulation!

Same goes for wrist seals on a drysuit
