    UV exposure is a powerful attack on the skin, creating damage that can range from premature wrinkles to dangerous skin cancer. Damage from UV exposure is cumulative and increases your skin cancer risk over time. While your body can repair some of the DNA damage in skin cells, it can't repair all of it.

    Still advertising what an idiot you are I see.    Funny how you whine about me always posting the same thing over and over isn't it my gay little stalker?

    Not to my knowledge.  But continual exposure to the sun while out on the boat's weather deck can.

    Sailing cannot cause skin cancer, but too much exposure to sun over many years can. Use sunscreen.
