If you're doing clipper, you'll need sailing socks and you'll spend a small fortune on them. This set, if you are male and fit "Large" size, will get you on your way without the heavy outlay.
Believe it or not, these 7 pairs of socks are the only socks I took on the 29 day crossing of the North Pacific on leg 6 of the 17/18 race, and they worked out well (though I may have been a bit smelly!). 2 pairs of Seal Skinz sailing socks, one long (over calf) and one medium (mid-calf), 2 pairs of Gill Neoprene socks (these were FAB - very warm) and 3 pairs of merino wool small socks which go underneath the others.
And randomly a pair of merino wool fingerless gloves (pretty sure they're SealSkinz - go under other gloves). This lot will set you back c£140-150. The long socks did all my training levels and the crossing but are still ok. The neoprene & the mid-length just Leg 6. The merino gloves are unused. The merino socks I can't remember!!!
