Neoprene mittens with open free palms.
Or wear a 4/3 wetsuit.
Down to 51 degrees.
Sealed booties and some kind of hood.

what is your water temp? our's (at Isabella) is still 47 degrees - a bit bracing... I may need to go on a road trip!

Eva, I just got a O'Neill Psycho Tech 5.5/4 and it is the toastier wet suit ever. Basically sealed, ultra-comfy and flexible, with a pair of booties I get in the water without any problem!

NB They are on sale right now at Big Winds


thanks for that! I sail in a 3/2 with added layers as needed, and am generally fine - except for my hands: have not found a solution that leaves me with a decent grip on my booms. The last glove-trial was almost comical: I'd be good in a straight line, but dropped the rig every single time, coming out of a jibe...
o well, spring seems in the air!

I use atlas 370 nitrile gloves, $6, sticky, and they add some warmth Very Happy

Lopez water temp probably around 50 now. Tried using my 2 mil booties but had to switch back to the 5 mil ocean pair. Air temp has been nice enough to use a short sleeve long leg 2 mil suit most of the time with sunny 70's, but did use the 4/3 once about a week ago in low to mid 60's.
