Looks like Sealskinz are needed! Not sure how you'd get them though - unless you get to an outdoor shop in one of your stop-overs.

I've got some of their thinner cycling gloves which are pretty good and some mittens with fold over finger cover for the winter.

Wrinkly skin is in our DNA from an earlier time in our evolution, your feet and hands do that for better grip when in water, I'm not lying look it up on the interweb
