Goggle Recommendations

When the spray really starts to fly and it's cold and windy and stormy, what goggles do you use when you are on deck to keep your eyes and upper face warm and dry and keep the salt out of them ? Nobody likes a cold numb face and watery eyes! I assume when it gets to that point you have a wet/dry suit hood on, but if not, please also tell me what you are wearing on your head. I'm very curious! Thank you.

I don't use any

I keep my ugly face behind the dodger. Then again when it's really cold here we put on a sweatshirt. LOL

I never wear goggles. The salt spray gets on them and you can't see anything.

On deliveries I move boats South in the winter and North in the summer.

I read some time ago that Dennis Connors uses plain water in a spray bottle to rinse the salt from his eyes during races. Although I cannot see that being a particularly good idea in November in the New England.
