TeamO partners with the RWYC Lonely Rock Race 2020 - Safety Partner

TeamO has been announced as the safety partner for the inaugural Lonely Rock Race which will be run in August 2020 by the Royal Western Yacht Club.

Press Announcement!

The RWYC Lonely Rock Race is pleased to announce our chosen charity as the RNLI. This comes together with the announcement of TeamO Marine who have been appointed as our Safety Partner.

Lauren Mead, Sales and Marketing Director said "Now more than ever we all need something to look forward to, and The Lonely Rock Race stands for so much that we believe in at TeamO: tenacity, a drive to compete and a love of offshore racing. We are delighted to be supporting the inaugural event as Safety Partner and to provide the fleet with the best British-made lifesaving equipment. The Fastnet Rock is an iconic mark in the British racing scene, and we are looking forward to meeting the racers at the start and finish lines where we will be donating prizes and supporting as much as we can."

Chris Arscott – Commodore of the Royal Western Yacht Club said ‘again we have great news for all the competitors of the Lonely Rock Race, more prizes from more great companies. We really want to support the industry in any way we can, this is a small way to give each business some marketing publicity during these difficult times. This also brings the total prize fund to well over £35000! We are also really pleased to be supporting the RNLI. Whilst all our competitors are very experienced and sufficiently qualified to race, we never know what may be around the corner. The RNLI do a terrific job in watching over us and it’s great that we can recognise their services in this way. We hope as many people and businesses alike can dig deep and donate something by using the link below’

Muy buena calidad de producto y servicio

Todo perfecto, producto de buena calidad y servicio fiable. Debido al brexit hay que pagar los costes de aduana e impuestos cuando te entregan el paquete. He podido colocar en el interior una baliza personal PLB1 Rescueme de Onesignal, aunque no pude fijarla en el soplador por falta de espacio. Por otro lado el chaleco es muy ligero, confortable y en dias calurosos se soporta bién.

Great lifejacket

Got two of these recently in different colours and got to wear them on a few coastal passages. The jackets are very comfortable, almost to the point of not noticing you are wearing one - and no more neck pain, which is fantastic. They appear very well made, look great and so far have served us well, hopefully will continue doing so in an actual emergency, should one occur. The only small gripe I have is the little loop for hanging the jacket up digging into my back - I'll probably just cut it off as I hang the jacket by the harness attachment point (much wider). Highly recommended product overall, thank you TeamO for all the incredible work I'm sure you had to do to get these on the market.

Great so far

I have worn this a few times and it’s so comfortable with a jacket on I forgot I was wearing it. I have noticed that there is a loop at the neck for hanging it up that is pretty stiff. I would prefer that sit flatter. All in all, great pfd so far.

So far loving it!

Have only worn it for a couple weeks but so far really happy with this lifejacket. It seems well made and fits nicely. As a larger chested lady I was looking for a vest that would not place all the bulk on top of my chest and this has most of it on neck/shoulders, but far enough back on neck that I have full head mobility. My only suggestion would be that the vertical back panel would have adjustable height so I could get the chest strap to truly sit underneath my breasts. I realize this is a specific fit issue that might not apply to most, it still fits better than most all the lifejackets I have tried up until this point. I was surprised to receive my order to the US from the UK really quickly.

Outstanding product and Customer Service

The website was out of stock so I emailed the company. I heard back within 3 business days. I was kept apprised of why no stock and when to expect. I was emailed the day the items posted. I ordered and received the package in 5 days to the US from UK! Lauren and TeamO went above and beyond any other companies customer service Ive ever encountered. Product is amazing too. Our sail club is ordering them.
