March-October wear for South Shields:  1mm neoprene 'rash vest' 2mm shorty, 1/2 length hikers, BA, spray top: NO PROBLEM!!  The faster the boat you sail the more you work, the less you need to wear!!, sail skiffs and save money on clothing (you'll need it for all the blocks etc you will ware out )

Getting off the subject a bit... but (and this must be very girlie of me) I
never know what kit to take, so tend to have everything - yes 5 rashies,
wetsuit, drysuit etc... my sailing bag is bigger than me and it's
beginning to fall apart...

Any suggestions for a replacement?

Or a strategy to keep my gear down?

Gael, you could get one of those Henri Lloyd ones with wheels on, look a little pathetic but does not tire your arms out.  Personally I stick to my old Typhoon single compartment one and a bin liner for dry stuff, and just jump on it if i can't fit stuff in, percussive maintanance

The bigger the bag the more you put in it!  Buy a smaller bag and then you can only take what you need.

Alternatively, dispense with bags altogether and simply fill the entire boot of the car with sailing kit, spanners and spares.

However, it will smell foul if that you forget to take out before going to the supermarket on Monday night.

Or is that just me?
