Right? I mean wouldn't most of us?
Huh, that is a better question. Would most of us? I should have made this thread a poll...

Re: Sailing Gloves? Yea or Nay?

Just done about 10k miles offshore. Never wore my gloves once.
But racing. Wear them 100% of the time.

If you do, here's a vote for: of course not! When I do deliveries, either as captain or crew, I bring my own foulies. If anyone demanded where my deck shoes or whistle were, I'd laugh in his face. PFD? surely there's one on the boat somewhere....point is, if my captaining skills are going to be judged by the weenie gear I fetch along rather than by my experience and reputation, I probably don't want that job.
A boat owner's confidence in a captain should have been established before he shows up to take the boat, and micromanaging a captain by checking his gear is an insult to his professional abilities.
I've probably opened up a whole can of worms worthy of another thread: happy to move to one if anyone cares to discuss further.

I can count the number times we have beaten up a narrow enough passage to make me wish I had gloves on two hands. Mind you we have a furling main—I recall hauling the main on my friends boat put a lot more stress on my dainty hands, but even then we were winching more than hauling.

And if you watch a lot of youtube sailing (and unfortunately I do) it's usually the well-dressed noobs who sport the fingerless gloves. But maybe when I get a bit saltier I will want some?
Being an old fart I find that wearing gloves on and around the boat helps prevent blood all over the place. I am forever taking a bit of bark off the backs of my hands and bleeding all over the place.

I use mechanics gloves to work on the boat and sailing gloves at all other times.

Cheers
Ian

Re: Sailing Gloves? Yea or Nay?

If you can light a match on your palms, gloves probably not needed. My palms are pretty thick right now and I don’t remember ever regretting to have gloves on...
