Screwed around with sit on tops a couple of times, best was in Mexico. Planning on getting started in Touring. Going to take lessons here: http://www.ecomarine.com/lessons/index.html Figuring for summer weather, I'd be wearing something like: Synthetic sport shorts Synthetic T (Underarmour or something?) NeoPrene Shorty Microfleece on top. Does that sound about right? Plan on buying this stuff straightaway, nothing against the retailer but sharing a wetsuit just doesn't feel right to me. Figure to buy the rest in bits and pieces as I go along. (Pump, Float, Skirt, etc.) I have a very good understanding of weather and navigation, very similar to Aviation which I have a background in. Anybody have any tips? Things you wished you'd done differently? Must have equipment? I'm a bigger guy, 6'4", 210ish. I imagine size will make finding suitable gear and clothing difficult... Thanks much.
