Thanks for that link IT friggin difficult to find a wide brim in NZ that doesn’t go curly above 10 knots

Similar to this?  

The tube of New Zealand Cancer Society Everyday sunscreen, SPF 50+. I been using has failed AMA testing.  Bloody Hell !!!!! Who can you trust.  Plus the Testing Body (USA) was found to have been duddy

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 ;-).

im turning 60  shortly and yes ,already had my fair share of cancery bits removed, I just got a new hat from Torpedo 7, wide brim with a neck flap, also has a stiff peak and a sturdy strap and buckle, stays on great in 30 knts,  the hats are marketed for surfing, best one ive had so far, worth checking out the website

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

Hey guys


Agree about hard trying to find a good hat! One product I have bought which works really well and are super comfortable is icerays (http://www.icerays.co.nz)


They are sleeves which you just pull on to protect your arms - way cooler than wearing a long sleeve top to stop Mr angry sun burning over summer!
