This weekend is not a bad time as they West Coast Sailing (a great bunch of guys!) has a discount for ICSA, 20% off of Gill and if you spend $200, you get a $25 gift certificate! ($300 gives you $50 so a good incentive)
- Harken classic ¾ $25.50, gloves and the Gills are on sale now at westcoastsailing.com
- Musto MPX Trousers. Musto really lasts a long time
- Sperry Waterproof SeaHiker. It's important to get lace ups because under hard use the salt water just destroys the zippers (like the regular Sperry SeaHiker).
- Musto BT1 Dinghy Smock. You don't need a heavy jumper, but want something that fits well and doesn't let water in, so the 1/4 zip is key.
- El Cheapo dishwashing gloves (to put under your gloves)
