life jackets

All the online chandleries do a good selection at sensible money Dave, go for the best price recognised make rather than just the cheapest available as it's an important piece of kit, a 150 Newton is plenty for the rivers.

Just to add we chose these because they are very comfortable to wear with the padded fleece collar against you bare neck in the summer and very easy to fasten and unfasten compared to some.

Hi folks, is there anybody around the broads that hires them out, as they are a lot more comfortable to wear, and seeing as we`re going to be sticking to the southern section with their faster tides etc, it would be a lot easier to wear one of these rather than the cumbersome bouyancy jacket type the hire yards use?. Regards to all ............... Neil.

We also use Baltic Winners supplied from Suffolk Sailing and find them very comfortable.

Used the Baltics today for the first sail of the season :party2:

If the weather up there was as good as down here in very sunny Dorset, you must have had a good day?. Glorious sunshine, with a very pleasant lightish breeze. Perfect for sailing :love:love:Sailing:Sailing:Sailing .
