Women's wetsuits make dinghy sailing comfortable in colder temperatures and can extend your sailing season. Wetsuits are a ‘next-to-skin’ fit, and women’s suits are specifically designed to fit the female physique. These neoprene suits are sailing specific and provide thermal insulation, padding and abrasion resistance. Wetsuits are available in different thicknesses that provide varying levels of insulation. Styles vary to suit your type of sailing and temperature. Styles include the shorty, short arm, long john, hiker & steamer. All options can be worn as a standalone piece or as a layer. A wetsuit works to insulate your body heat and use it to warm a thin layer of water trapped between the skin and the suit. Wetsuits are worn almost exclusively by dinghy sailors and sometime by those on small boats that receive a lot of spray.
