I go on the theory that if the sheets are frozen and the cover is all stiff then it's drysuit time, but I don't get all of the air out of it because if you leave a bit of air in it it gets warm and stays warm! Other than that i wear shorts and T shirt with Gill spray top and Musto high up trousers, keeps me warm 3 miles offshore in 28kts of breeze in a National 12 and Laser 4000!

for what you pay for them ive found that rash vests are an unbelievably versitile and worth while peice of kit, be it a single layer under a BA in summer or a few layers of them over one layer of thermals in winter, ive never been cold using them! by far worth at least having two in your bag.

Here here Chris. I was given a rash vest for christmas and am a complete convert. I've not been cold sailing at two freeeeezing regattas (Exe & Grafham) nor when we were out in Weymouth everyday last week on our holiday.

the rash vests with neoprene torso bits are good, they keep you much warmer than a normal one.

i know a man at my club and he is quite happy wearing a shortie all year round. its not like he doesnt own a wet suit either he uses a full wet suit for windsurfing. he is a good sailor tho.

he just doesnt like the amount a full wetsuit restricts you in the boat

i prefer to wear shorts and a rashie as much as possible
