There are few sports that test the ability of your eyewear to the limit - but for sure, sailing sunglasses are going to come in for a rough time! They need to block wind and unwanted light from the sides and bottom of your vision - something that Rapid Eyewear's range does very well. If you sail on the open seas, you'll also experience some crazy light changes - that's why Rapid Eyewear's interchangeable lens system is ideal because, if the weather or light is poor, you can use the light-enhancing lenses and when it's bright and there's lots of glare, polarised beige or grey mirror will do the trick.
Lightweight, wrap-around sunglasses are perfect for sailing, and so is the
inclusion of a retainer to ensure your eyewear remains firmly where you want it, i.e. on your head and not in the water.

Jet skiers and water skiers will find our Float sunglasses especially ideal since, unlike most 'lightweight' plastic sunglasses, they won't sink if you drop them in the water. these amazing sunglasses weigh just 30g, making them light enough to simply bob up and down if they do slip off.
