I am a teenage sailor just getting into the exciting world of sailing. I would like to know if anyone has any good recomendations for a quality pair of sunglasses at an affordable price.

Hey Funky,

Get the cheapest sunglasses you can find that provide good UV protection. It''s a shame to see a pair of sunglasses splash in the water. It''s a tragedy if they cost $100.00.

You have to remember where you''re going to be using these. I strongly suggest Wal_Mart Strike King. Thier only about $7.00 and are polorized. If you loose them overboard sooo what!!!

Also, try an industrial supply. A safety wrap-around (polycarbonate) that won''t brake and has the UV''s. Helps to keep the wind out of the eyes. Dry eyes are not healthy. There are many styles with replaceable lens. And get a strap so if they do get knocked off they have a better chance of staying on board. Carry extra pairs for yourself and others. Cataracts are not a good thing. Enjoy.............Del
