scottyt is on a distinguished road
the only problem is canada is limited to ten rounds at a time, not much defense when drinking the good beer you all have

edit caffeine is not good for accuracy either

Only if it will incite lengthy debates. Although I don't remember any controversy about headgear (unless you want to talk about the Tilly vs. Baseball hat thing)

But if you want to start something: I think that a derby is far more appropriate for sailing than a top hat or a homburg. Stetsons are totally inappropriate and fedoras are okay if you're out with your goomba's. A Panama is good: a turban not so much (unless you are a Barbary Pirate). Pith helmets are great for jungle exploration, but should be avoided while at sea.

The classic bandana (or the modern 'Doo Rag') is always correct, although those of us with a big nose and big ears require something with a brim. A sombrero would be going to far.

Boaters are better for rowing. You can't go wrong with a tricorne (into which you can stick a feather and call it 'macaroni').

If you sail a Jeanneau or Beneteau then you could wear a beret - but take it off when approaching a dock or another vessel.

But, for my money, this is the ultimate piece of sailing headwear:

Make sure you have bow thrusters for the dogs to operate.

Actually SD sports the W.A.F.F.L.E.R. suit (with optional Phalanx attachment) when he hits the bounding main.

Here's a snap of him ready to do 'bidnis':
