Yes, definitely!
Long passages become more comfortable, short ones too, and if I hadn't worn one on the 2002 BIBOA Weymouth cruise I would have NIMRAG stamped on my forehead. Gecko 1 GPS 0.

Eyewear

Tim,

I usually wear Oakley sunglasses - the cheapest from their outlet shop in Gunwharf.

When it starts raining I wear Oakley goggles bought from the sunglasses shop in Shooters Hill Cowes. IIRC only about 20 or 25 which was a big surprise for Oakley kit.

However, in lots of rain I do find water getting in through the top.

What do people wear on their eyes when out on the sea. I would normally wear my sunglasses although I dont' think they would have been much good yesterday (and I've lost them which isn't great).

I had a look at some Oakley goggles designed for motorcross. Are these likly to fill up with water over time??

We use full face Geckos in the race boat and they are much lighter than regular crash helmets leading to less fatigue over the 1.5 hour races - Otherwise its Oakley sunnies when its sunny and I have some Oakley goggles for when its not!

Just came accross these people

who also sell them in Europe from this address

http://www.nauticfriend.com/index.ph...zed_sunglasses

The glasses look OK. I think that they are cheaper in SA and may be will get a pair to try them out. This is what I want something cheap that can do the job.
