Clothing needed for South Pacific crossing

With the sailing across the South Pacific you'd expect the usual shorts, t shirt and sun hat to be the norm for sailing wear. But what is also really needed , is my question?

Do I need full ocean going wet weather gear ?
What else? Example , a wind stopper fleece? Light coastal jacket?
Gloves? How cold does it get at night?

Am going to panama beginning Feb to try to hitch hike as crew on a yacht. Got some sailing experience but mostly in cold climates hence the question of what's needed here.

Expected passage is panama to French Polynesia then onwards maybe to Australia. No idea what kind of boat etc I.e dodger.

Any tips on what to take , as crew , would be appreciated? Hoping panama has some good sailing shops!
