Why is clipping on important?

Great little 30 second reminder here from the Royal Yachting Association about why clipping on is important.

Clipping on with a regular lifejacket makes NO sense to us - if you fall overboard your lifejacket and tether combination will tow you face down in the water next to the boat, where the risk of drowning is incredibly high.

Tethers used in combination with BackTow lifejackets however make complete sense. If you fall overboard and deploy the BackTow system the lifejacket will rotate you on to your back and you will be in a seated position, face up next to the boat. The BackTow strop can then be used as a recovery system to safely get your MOB back onboard.

Stay clipped on, stay with the boat, stay the right way up.

    Cracking Little Knife

    Compact, light and with all the main functions you need, this is a great sailing/boating knife or general purpose knife and has replaced my normal 'to hand' knife. I have also had to recover it from my mate, who quite likes it!! Thanks TeamO.

    Fantastic quality & great customer service

    I ordered to be shipped to Connecticut. UPS held up the package because some paperwork went missing. Lauren was extremely helpful and we got them moving with minimal delay. They are extremely high quality and fairly priced. You definitely get what you pay for!
    They fit nicely and I look forward to years of use.
    Thanks!
