Yachting Caps Anyone?

Hi All,

Fun question. Does anyone have and wear a yachting cap for anything other than perhaps a formal Yacht Club event? I've seen a few of the Greek Fisherman style caps worn by skippers.

Wouldn't be caught dead wearing one, same with a Greek fisherman's hat.


Baseball cap for me.

I wear truckers caps on the boat, usually with some logo since I try to get them for free. Don't wear any hat on a boat that you couldn't watch recede in your wake without laughing.

Dockside, I have a wide brim canvas gardening hat with a wire in the brim so it can be flattened out like Smokey the Bear or rolled up like a cowboy hat. It is sweat stained and beat to hell and I really like it......

I really like my Tilley hat. Iíve had it for about 20 years. My new favorite though is:

Marty: I'd keep the hat from BVI and ditch the ball cap. The one you're wearing seems to be working just fine.

I wear visors. Hats retain too much of my heat. Even baseball caps make me and especially my head sweat. Visors allow the head to vent properly and my head and visor aren't soaked all the time.

They're making some great, super lightweight visors made of wicking material now.

Visors may have worked for me at one time. My hair is getting a bit too thin these days for a visor however.

I sweat like a madman, but luckily in the PNW, it never really gets that warm and if it did, a visor would not work for my sexy bald head lol

Me to, I love my Tilleys and my dermatologist makes me wear them as well. I have three, two in good shape, one at home and one on the boat and the other a work hat and all sweat stained. Tilleys rock

Since Little League Baseball, I haven't worn a hat or cap of any sort. However, I'm young enough to still have more than enough hair.
