I'm off to Melbourne, Australia
in mid February to complete my Day Skippers practical. As I live and sail in SE Asia
, staying warm is generally not much of an issue, even in a tropical downpour, but I suspect I'll need some warmer clothing
and wet weather gear
for the 5days/4 nights of the course. I'm also familiar with "layering", having sailed dinghies in NZ.
So I've been contemplating buying
a wet weather
jacket and trousers, and have looked at Musto BR1 or LPX, Gill Coast Jacket and Burke CB10 ranges online. I'm mainly concerned that I might purchase gear
that is either an overkill or insufficient for the trip.
Anyone used the above on Port Phillip Bay during what I guess will still be summer, bearing in mind Melbourne's "four seasons in one day" weather
Any recommendations/advice would be appreciated....
