The following review was written by the editorial department of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.




Ocean Racing has unveiled a new line of stylish and affordable polarizing sailing sunglasses. Designed specifically for sailing, the glasses are available in a variety of smart sport-wrap styles and feature silicone nose and temple tips to ensure a comfortable and secure fit in wet conditions. The optically correct polarized polycarbonate lenses eliminate glare, allowing the wearer to enjoy sharpened detail and the ability to see puffs more clearly. The anti-scratch, hard-coated lenses are impact resistant and have a 15 percent tint, to absorb nearly all reflected glare and 99.9 percent of all UV A, B and C rays. Available in 4 different styles, the Ocean Racing sunglasses line consists of full and hardtop-style frames, a choice of medium and large sizes, and 2 color options per style. Each pair ($66) comes with a crush-proof zipper case and cleaning-cloth storage bag. Ocean Racing, Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., 313-887-8415; www.oceanracing.com
