  1. Ask blackpan to see if he has has a safety harness that will fit u. Then possibly think a weather jacket. Light weight possibly. I found the heavy offshore grade was sweat causing during the sailing season and sailing the tropics. Colour is important. Buy some sailing gloves that fit u. They save nasty rope burns when learning. Natural instinct on numerous occasions could b is to try and prevent sheets from running free when learning.

We used to sail to the BOI via tutukaka Evey xrisma so from Auck. I would give him a 2 to 3 he start and would arrive 1 to 2 hrs before him. Had plenty of room to store the dingy on the decks or nets. He never step foot on boat for 11's or sun downs they where always on his boat. Yacht sqardron member which was not a problem. It meant we drunk more of his plonk.

Mate brought a 25 ft reactor 4 $27,000 with less room less berths. Tri under $5000. Never regretted it. Sold it 8 years later 4 three times the amount I paid 4 it.
