Did you know? Sailors Disease (skin cancer) is epidemic! Protect yourself and the ocean with TropicSport’s eco-friendly sunscreen. It meets the US FDA 80-minute & the Australian 4-hour water resistance test! Unlike other mineral sunscreens, it does not leave a ghostly glow, goes on easily, does not run or sting your eyes. Plus it does not corrode your sunglass lenses the way chemical sunscreens with toxic oxybenzone does! It clips onto life jackets, sailing bags, shorts … so protection is always at hand.

Each and every sailor should have the opportunity to enjoy the sport to its fullest. At US Sailing, our training and education programs build skills that benefit sailors throughout the country. Fair and well-run races, safer waterways, skilled racers and confident cruisers all ensure a lifetime of participation and fun for every sailor. US Sailing has set the standard for excellence in the sport for over 120 years, and it is the collective power of the US Sailing membership that makes it happen. Membership matters.
