I shoulda mentioned, the bulge at the front, conceals this gubbins...

One of the key points in favour of the purchase, was that the "chute" was of sufficient size, to accommodate, one...

When you mentioned your clothing.
A little while ago, I purchased breathable wet weather jacket & bib pants from Silverdale, bloody good stuff

Thanks to SitDown for putting me onto NZSailing and yachting gear.

I'd never considered yachting wetsuits, despite being a sailing fella for 50 years, I've never needed a sailing wetsuit, I was immune to cold unless there was snow on it.

I'd only ever needed a wetsuit when diving, and 45 yrs ago these were custom made, so as to be 5mm thick, on a young teen and tighter when the teen grew. Too expensive to replace. So my memories of that one, were of a very difficult ingress and egress. I finally got rid of that old wetsuit when I was 25, as it was by then, indeed a second skin.

I used surfie wetsuits after that, and this most recent purchase is my first for 20 years.
