TeamO Marine Safety Products are delighted to announce that we have partnered with the Royal Naval Sailing Association (RNSA).

The new TeamO Marine x RNSA partnership comes at the start of an exciting new sailing season as the RNSA launch their new Corby29 ‘Cutlass’, to enable more Service men and women of all sailing abilities to actively engage in the sport.

Supported by 5000 members across the UK, Cutlass shall take part in a planned calendar of events and regattas in the 2021 season, including Cowes Week.

TeamO Marine have supplied the crew of Cutlass with a full set of 170N Offshore Lifejackets with TeamO’s award-winning integrated BackTow Deckharness. This ISO-approved lifejacket is specifically designed for sailors racing and sailing in offshore conditions far from land and have all of the high performance safety features required by sailors in those conditions, whilst still being a comfortable lifejacket to wear over long periods of time.

TeamO Marine’s Design Director and Co-founder, Oscar Mead, was present at the launch of Cutlass at Fort Blockhouse in Gosport last week to present the lifejackets to the sailors of the Royal Navy Sailing Association. “I am thrilled to be supporting the RNSA network, both with these Offshore Lifejackets, but also with an exclusive discount for all RNSA members so that we can support more people getting out on the water and in to sailing in 2021” said Oscar.

The RNSA naming ceremony was masterminded by RNSA CEO Philip Warwick, and Fr Tom Pyke, RNSA's chaplain lead prayers for the safety of the team at sea, and Membership Secretary, Deborah Whalley, did the honours with the champagne to officially name the new yacht.  Philip thanked TeamO for their fantastic support and said that “he was excited by this this new partnership and hoped that it would really help RNSA’s work to get sailors sailing”.

Founded in 1935 and now in its 86th year, the RNSA is a Service Sports Association and registered charity that delivers the sport of sailing across the disciplines of yachting, dinghies and windsurfing for the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and their associated reserve forces.  For more information visit their website at

Southampton-based TeamO Marine Safety Products Ltd are the design and manufacturing business who first introduced their patented BackTow lifejacket to the sailing world in 2013. The BackTow lifejacket is the only lifejacket deckharness which can turn a ManOverboard sailor in to a safe face-up position if they go overboard from a vessel whilst clipped on with a safety tether. Normal lifejacket deckharnesses with a fixed clip-on point will tow the sailor face-down next to the vessel if they fall or are washed overboard whilst tethered.

Amazing product and service!

170N offshore lifejacket

Hoping I never need to use it in anger but so far satisfied with the product.
Fits perfectly, feels lighter than previous version and just love the colour.. !
Initially I didn’t know who to direct my emails to .. but once I found a contact communication ran smoothly.

Few Upgrades and would be Perfect

Now that I worn it for a little while now it’s a really good product! I’m quite happy with it. The only reason I can’t give it five stars is because the leg straps just aren’t beefy enough. I’d like something more substantial to hold on to me if I fall overboard.. These little teeny tiny thin straps will dig into your legs real quick… This is literally the only thing that’s not built to an industrial standard, everything about this lifevest is made for offshore cruising!

Great craftsmanship

I just opened my new N170 and am incredibly impressed. The craftsmanship is truly superb.
I spent my entire career of 46yrs. either as a sailmaker or running my own canvas shop for 34 years. It really is a piece of art, hats off to the people who make these. I of course will recommend it as the one to buy.
I was hoping that I ordered it in time for the included tether. Close but no cigar.
Thank you all for working so hard to put out a great product

Great buying experience, well made product.

The whole buying experience was professional and smooth.
Product arrived promptly and very well packed.

Jacket itself appears a very well made, quality product. Clearly in a different league to some of the others I have here.
Neat, tight stow, with a well fitting cover. Supportive harness. Shaped yoke and straps make for a good, snug, yet comfortable fit.

Very comfortable to wear, male 1.8m & 85kg.
My vhf and PLB holsters fitted easily. Sizing adjusts easily to suit appropriate ppe.

I'd v probably give 5 stars once I've had some longer days afloat with it, but quite early days yet...

One of the best LJs I've used during. >40 year career in commercial marine industries.

V pleased, would buy again.
