Below is a list of items of what we recommend you need to wear for a YPA Session. Along with these you will need a towel and full change of clothes, as it is likely you will get wet while sailing and wet clothes will quickly make you cold.
Starting Kit (Cheaper)
Ideal (But Expensive)
Wooly Hat – One third of your heat is lost through your head.
Warm hat – A nice warm hat will keep your head warm and dry.
Anorak – A thin nylon windproof works well.
Oversuit – Keeps the wind and water off you and protects your wetsuit.
Over trousers – Thin light ones work best.
Sailing trousers – These will keep you warm and dry.
Trainers – to protect your feet.
Wet boots – Wetboots with soft soles keep your feet warm and protect your feet.
