I wear Acuview 1 a Day contact lens all the time when I sail. And I have
never lost any, and I sail a Cherub you get wet at speed quite a lot ( ask
Lucy! ). I got feed up of wearing glasses with all the spray i couldn't see
anything. It got to the point where I might as well not bother with glasses
the quaility of vision was about the same!

So go for contacts. get the one a days so it doesn't matter if you do lose
them. there are some great deals to be had on the one a days as well for
occasional use, I think I pay £12 a mounth for 20 pairs.

my crew rich wears contacts all the time when sailing and has never had a problem with them though when its windy he has been known to put a pair of goggles on so he can see through the spray coming off our bow

Oh I forgot to mention the expensive glasses bit. I used to have a pair of
prescription Bolé interchangerable lens glasses that I used for sailing,
untill the mainsheet flicked up off a wave and lassooed them off my face.
All very expensive!

I also wear contact lenses for ages while sailing.

No matter with them. I remember once just sit down on my dagger board while waiting the lense to come back in the middle of my eye.

I wouldn't even make difference between my crew and a pinguin without them.

On the contrary, last sunday I went sailing with my prescription glasses and was worried all the day long to get the boom in the head or whatever...

I often wear sun glasses to avoir spray to makes them move or salt to makes me blind.
