Exactly. Air temperatures recently have been touching down to freezing but mainly about 5ºC above. I wear a shortie wetsuit over thermal base layer (thermal t-shirt + thermal trousers) with spray top, hiking shorts, thin fleece and bouyancy aid on top. I also wear dinghy boots and gloves. I find that combination allows me to move easily - dry suits in lasers are cumbersome - while keeping me warm.
Hey Bradley, what part of Georgia do you live in? If you're anywhere around Atlanta then Lake Lanier Yacht Club has a frostbite series. Yeah, I know, it will probably never even be cold enough to ever need a drysuit, but we call it frostbite anyway.
lol Ken. It's hard to think of any sailing right now where I live. A low-pressure system that formed over Canada has swept in and the high for today was 15 degrees fairenheight. Wind chill makes it a little above 0.
