Default RE: When sailing in warm places...

Depends on what you mean by warm. Above 30 degrees C, lycra keeps you cool.

Water temp. and how often you fall in makes a difference too.

I have several tops, with various amounts of neoprene, one shorty, one 3mm farmer john pant (great for formula) and one full 3/5 semi-dry wet suit.

Easy to fine tune for comfort.

Stay out of the sun unless you have good insurance to pay the dermatologist. I have had about 15 skin cancers removed and probably over 500 pre-cancerous rough patches (karatosis) frozen off.

Everyone under 35 thinks they are bullet proof, but wait until you are over 50. Don't forget the hat and sunscreen
