OK, so instead of (edit, see below ) "hardly" dissing Biggles, how about sharing what you guys wear on bad days when out there, especially when not in company?

To start the ball rolling, I'll be in drysuit (socks not boots) with trainers instead of boots, and a Gecko, with handheld attached. Have to think yet about getting a knife, handheld GPS and some means of carrying a personal flare or two.

I was out on my own two weeks ago, beautiful day, and quite a few boats out. Coming down Southampton water, I had not put the drysuit on, only normal clothes and good waterproofs. As soon as I got to Calshot, and the water got a bit livelier, decided the Drysuit and Gecko were going on, and glad I did. At least that way I know I'll last a while in the water, even with wet hair my head will be protected from the wind keeping heat in a bit more etc. Made me feel much happier to be out there al on my little lonesome I can tell you, and it was not nearly as bad as it was on Friday.

Hardly 'dissing'. If it cuts up I tend to put my T shirt an flip flops back on.

It actually doesn't take long to put all that gear on- most of it's just attached to the lifejacket.

Long sleeve Scarlets jersey, rather than Scarlets T-shirt.
