My fave is my Columbia hat. Looks like an Indiana Jones hat. IMO, a hat should give 360 degree coverage. Baseball caps shade your eyes and a portion of your face, but your ears and neck are left to sizzle. The baseball caps with the additional visor in back help your neck, but are still ineffective...ears are left to sizzle. A good couple inches+ of 360 degree coverage is where I want to be.

I have this: :: Dorfman Pacific Mesh Safari Hat - ClothesNmore.com - Brand Name Clothing at Great Prices. And another one with a floppy brim. Floppy flips up ( or down) in a stiff breeze or on a powerboat. The floppy was $14 at an arts festival in Ashville and the stiff was $24 at a tourist trap somewhere. The floppy has been through a lot and still looks great. Folds up and shoves in a pocket for those of us who still take our hats off when entering a building. Great ventilation on both. Both combined cost less than a Tilley and a seasons worth of ramp fees, outboard gas, and gas station air machine trailer tire fill-ups. Still wouldn't mind getting one as a gift. But look into the dorfman hats if you get a chance. They also dry very quickly, unlike cotton.

Another vote for Tilly. I bought a cheap hat first at Eastern Mountain Sports. Was so floppy in the wind I hated it. Bought a Tilly in flea market in the Florida Keys and really liked it. Lost it in a marina rest room, and Tilly replaced it for half price. Can't argue much with that.

Annapolis and Newport are two of my favorite towns. Sounds like a great trip and I wish you fair winds. The Sabre 40 is a vessel I lust for, but I'll be content for now with my 34.

What is it you sail?

I too love my Tilley. Maybe not snazzy looking but shading and comfortable. And a secret pocket to hide a twenty dollar bill.

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

I can't find the T2 on their site. The T3 is the closest to what I've seen as a 'Tilley'.

Is that the one?

I have also done the 4oz at a time weight loss program sponsored by my dermatologist and have stepped up my use of sunscreen and hats.

I do not look good in a hat.

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

I second the motion for Tilley. Found mine at REI and, though not what you would consider fashionable, it keeps the sun off and is relatively cool in these hot Texas summers.

My dermatologist has left my back looking like I survived a drive-by shooting, so I am very conscious about the sun. Coolibar shirts and Tilley keep the scalpel at bay.

YMMV

"I do not look good in a hat. "
If you're trying for the cover of Vogue, worry about that.
Many of us wear hats because we don't really give a damn about the papparazzi, we just want to keep the sun off our heads and out of our eyes. Looking good, might come in third.
