XX2i Optics, makers of performance and casual polarized sunglasses and prescription eyewear, is joining forces with Team OceanHearts, a two-woman pair rowing from Monterey, California to Waikiki, Hawaii in the 2016 Great Pacific Race. The duo, consisting of Pat Hines and Liz Dycus, aims to become the first two-woman team to ever complete the race.

The Great Pacific Race, beginning on June 4, is one of the most challenging endurance competitions on the planet. Ocean rowboats of two and four people travel across the world’s largest body of water for anywhere from 30 to 80 days, covering close to 3,000 miles.

Team OceanHearts will wear the XX2i Optics France2 performance sunglasses with interchangeable polarized and clear lenses. Both team members will have their eye prescription digitally surfaced onto the backside of each sunglass lens, giving them edge-to-edge RX coverage.

“One of the things that’s really important when you’re out rowing 24/7 is that you protect your skin. Second most important thing is that you protect your eyes,” says Hines. “XX2i fit really well and they don’t slide off my nose. I can wear these and I don’t even feel like I’m wearing glasses.”
