Yesterday afternoon I was out at my marina sailing around thinking, this is noisy! Sure enough, my right ear began to ring.

The water was unstructured yesterday, with little waves in different directions, and my sail had a lot of power, so I was doing a lot of bouncing and my new, quieter board was doing a lot of slapping.

I will have to use earplugs after all.

I went to Longs Drugs and bought Mack’s Pillow Soft Earplugs for $3.89.

I could have saved $2 buying them on Amazon!

Two pairs come in the package. The photo right shows the package (open), the reusable case, the instructions, and the silicone blobs. (The ruler is so that you can see how big it is.)

They’re squishy. You put them in the outside of your ear, not in the ear canal.

Today I shall try them.
