I know that Fox's Chandlery has a great range of gloves for dinghy sailing. I always go down there and get my gear. Very helpful people though, especially Tom!

I suffer from cold hands a lot and it often curtails my sailing in Winter. I found Rooster Arctic Pro gloves (with thermal underglove when really cold) were very effective and lasted well. Sadly they stopped selling them! The Aqua Pro glove is not nearly as good, so I'm still searching....

I've just ordered two more pairs of the Gill 3 season gloves I linked to earlier while they're on a discount (and possibly discontinued).......

Eisvogel mentioned the Showa 477 industrial/cold room/oil rig/hostile environment work glove.
I think they are a good balance of insulation vs dexterity with excellent grip. OK they don't last as long as leather palmed gloves but at 9/pair I can afford a new pair every winter!
Here they are:

When it gets really cold I do put surgical gloves on under the ones which will get wet, which helps a little.

I have some Gill three season gloves https://www.gillmarine.com/gb/three-seasons-gloves.html which I find pretty good (out of stock and probably discontinued now but there'll be something similar). Grip is good, they are very flexible and much warmer than summer gloves.

When I was windsurfing I tried everything from surgical gloves and Marigolds to expensive neoprene. Nothing worked TBH 'cos of the need to grip the boom constantly but the key is to keep wind chill off your hands and neoprene rather than open mesh backs are well worth the extra bulk. Dinghy sailing is slightly less problematical as the grep strength required is somewhat less relentless (and your hands aren't constantly at shoulder/head hight with the blood draining out.......).

In the "Winter clothing" thread Piglet recommended some hefty rubber gloves. I got them, and they seem a good compromise between keeping your hands dry and being able to still move your fingers.
