What clothing do you need to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a tiny 'Dinghy with a lid'?

Our crew will need specialist and regular clothing for their Atlantic crossing; though due to the small size of the boat and storage at a premium, we will have to choose what we take on board carefully.

We will use good quality refurbished/last-season clothing where possible to maintain our green pledge. We are hoping to find sponsors and suppliers that might be able to help us.
