My wife had MOHS surgery two years ago, and after the initial scare, now clean margins and so far so good....We are a LOT more aware of protecting our selves than you would have imagined before.

She was not the "worship the sun" type like me, and seldom was out in it...but we both feel the added cost of UV protection shirts, layers of SPF50 and the like, are well worth it and we have continued to sail/dive/etc

Wish you all the best, and don't give up the sailing until you absolutely have to.
