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

I bought one of these in Australia last week.

Just back from Afternoon around the buoys racing where i wore it for the first time.

Its been a brilliant day here and usually my face would be glowing in spite of sunscreen , sunglasses and a wide brim hat.

Today my face is cool....

I thought it might be irritating to wear but it wasnt. Didnt interfere with vision nor communication.

So i am very pleased. Much interest from other sailors.

Some said that they felt a little intimidated when i was bearing down on them with just my eyes showing so that is also good ;-).

Anyone ever researched if the suncreams cause cancer. Some of them are pretty whoopy brews filling in the pores in your skin ? Cover up seems risk free !

I think some in the 60+ age group may be shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted.

just got results back from two more skin biopsies - negative this time, but I've had positive ones with surgery too.

 

And yeah, it's mostly from stupid stuff I did decades ago. 

 

We're trying to do better with the grandkids - don't let them get all browned up like we used to do. 

 

Go the AB's - I'm even starting to understand the rules a bit
