Shopping for sailing

Tillerman spotted I haven't done much sailing this year.

But I have an excuse - I've been shopping, including the following:
  • Charts from three countries
  • Almanacs & tide tables ditto
  • Assorted pilot books 
  • Life jacket (above) and harness
  • Musto base layers
  • iPad and iPhone waterproof case
  • iNavX for iPad with electronic charts
  • Iridium 9555 satellite phone lease
  • Iridium AxcessPoint and iPad software
  • Cigarette lighter adapters for all widgets
  • Additional camera battery & memory card
  • Findfast 210 PLB and buoyancy kit
  • Gloves and hat
Since then I've been busy getting all the widgets to work together and next I'll have to write some proper blog reviews (obviously).

There's surely no time to go sailing, is there?

That's OK. Shopping for sailing stuff is almost as much fun as actually sailing - and you don't even need to get wet.

Hmmm - I've bought rope, chain, expensive gloop, paint, screws - must be a different kind of sailing shop

There are actually a couple of more lists.

One of others had things like ropes on it. It was that sort of list with two columns, the second of which contains numbers.

I don't want to talk about that list

Sounds like you're prepping for more than a daysail on the Solent.

Where to?
