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.
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!
