There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Longsleeve loose white cotton or linen shirts with large cuffs n collar.
Medium brimmed straw hat I got from H&M in Prague for €5. it’s got a loose weave top that means it stays on even when it’s gusting 30. there’s never a pressure differential, apparently. A dab of zinc based sunblock on m lips n nose and smeared on the bits that went shaded all the time.

I hate wearing sunblock. Feels ick.

Next summer a pair of white loose long leg pants might also be employed. Dressed thus one looks a right royal tosser but it bloody works!

Not drawing any parallels here doc but you have reminded me of a boat I spotted in France recently .

It was the first boat with black sails I had spotted out of the 100s of benes , jonnos , elans etc . I grabbed the telescope and glassed it over and noted it was a new J boat of fortyish something feet .

It’s was being sailed solo by a gent in linen shirt and pants and what my son called “slippers” which seem to be popular over there with gents in moneyed circles . I sh*t you not it could’ve been Jonny Depp for all I know , filming some after shave ad cutting a dash through all the 4 knot caravans .

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.

I ended up ordering one of the face sheilds that the fisho's seem to wear a lot. I googled it and now get targeted with advertising from safishing.com in everything. Hopefully it will stop since I brought one :-)

 

Might have to get me one of those hats too IT.

I was going to ask that question as well. I'm seriously looking at one.

I'm considering either the Seahawke or Raptor V2.

 

I'm basically after a classic sailing cap but that also covers the temples, ears and neck, but will stay on in moderate sailing conditions. Learning towards the Raptor.
