HELP_Cheap Sailing + Dinghy Clothing and Advice?

Hi,

I have recently taken up keel boat and dinghy sailing which is brilliant!!

The only thing I have found is having the right clothing/ equipment is key to the enjoyment.

I am therefore on the lookout for the following if anyone knows of the cheapest places out there to look and the best gear for safety and quality? I am not after the basic stuff I want to best for quality.

Dinghy (at presently im sailing Toppers + Lazers but want to progress to a Dart 18) :

Bouncy aid
Wetsuit dinghy boots
Gloves
3mm wetsuit (with suitable padding)
Helmet

Keel:

Lifejacket with harness and crotch strap
Safety Line
Boots
Jacket
Salopettes
Good base and mid layers

I am open to suggestions for everything!

Thanks to any posters in adance!

Matthew

I buy a lot of my kit from Decathlon, its cheap and good quality.
decathlon.co.uk/net…y=0

and if you have sky, there is a series on travel and living about dinghy sailing called getting afloat.
