I will be crewing in April doing a delivery back across the Baltic. I'm looking for advice on gloves or tricks people have used to keep hands warm and dry. Unfortunately the old dinghy sailor's trick of using 'Marigolds' won't work this time.
I have a pair of the Henri Lloyd Helmsman's mitts and as great as they are, for rope and sail work they are not ideal and my normal gloves will just not be warm enough.
I have looked at the Gill and Musto winter/waterproof gloves but these seem to be bulky and more like skiing gloves. Sealskinz's also didn't seem that good when I tried them.
Has anyone cracked the warmth/dexterity problem?
