Hi Wessel Yes I probably went in 3 times over the course of the season wearing the superwarm top and skiff suit. I was pretty happy with the warmth retention of the gear and was fine to continue sailing once I had gone in. The day I wore the drysuit was 12-18 kts and I capsized once just because I could barely move in the darn thing. I am so happy with the gear I now have, I am probably going to sell the drysuit. Everyone is different, so you need to find what works for you. From casual observations last year i would say once it got really cold perhaps 40-60% of the people wore drysuits with the balance of people wearing wetsuits and some combination of drytop or spraytop. Thats my 2 cents.
