What do people find are the best sunglasses to use whilst model yacht sailing? I'm thinking of lens colour/tint, polarization and UV protection. Some people think that different lens colours/ tints help with depth perception ie when sailing around distant marks, glare reduction and increased contrast.


Thoughts and ideas welcome please.

Hello Dave,

IV also started to think about what type of glasses to use. Read a lot about it. Finally took Oakley SplitShot type with mirror blue lenses.

Works perfectly on blue water but very well on green and grey water also.

In any sunlight conditions.

What I'm waiting for are the fabulous brand Costa del Mar type Tuna Alley blue mirror (glass lenses version).

Costa seems the most advanced for watersport use.

Hope it helps.
