I don't always wear gloves, but when I do I use these.

I only wear gloves when racing with formula setup when I know I will have to be pumping. I have a Concept rower & lift weights so regular sailing is usually not an issue for needing gloves. I originally tried sailing gloves but they never felt right. Also sailing gloves are not really designed to be fully imersed in the water where waterski gloves are. Sailing & waterski golves are not generally thick enough to cause forearm fatigue, that is more an issue of cold water gloves that are thicker.
