Winter Racing Class

Suggested Gear List for Frostbite Racing

Items you will need to have for this winter are listed below. The three-layer systems is key! You want a good baselayer, a midlayer, and then an outer waterproof layer of your foul weather jacket and bibs.

  • Lifejackets are required any time we are on the water. We have some in stock for purchase if you do not have one, or you can use the orange ones provided with the boats (although they aren’t the most comfortable and having your own life jacket is a good investment).
  • Winter Hat
  • Gloves (two sets is a good idea). We have sailing gloves for purchase in the office.
  • Boots: Non-marking soles and something that is a bit larger than your normal size. You do not want a tight fitting boot, and remember you will be wearing thick socks.
  • Wool socks
  • Under layers: long underwear, fleece pants, heavier tech shirts (NO COTTON – Merino wool options are great)
  • A light weight jacket
  • A down vest is nice
  • Last are the outer waterproof layers: Foul weather sailing jacket (like the ones we have here in the office for sale), and bibs
