CBYA Visit to the Isle of Wight 27th June – 1st July 2019

Categories:

Julie Benneworth mooted the idea of this excursion and, together with CBYA Vice-Chairman Neil Robertson, and partner, Vicki Dryden-Wyatt, organised a super four-night CBYA trip to the Isle of Wight for the Round the Island Race. Eleven of us lodged at the Royal London Yacht Club, thanks to Neil/Vicki’s membership there.

On the first day we had lunch at the RORC, and in the evening Neil/Vicki invited us to their lovely house for cocktails, together with some of their local friends, prior to all going for fish and chip dinner at the Island Sailing Club.

Take time and care over a potentially life-saving purchase!

Categories:

Don’t pay the ultimate price for buying cheap!

The RYA report that a good quality lifejacket or buoyancy aid is one of the most important parts of your boating safety kit, so it’s worth putting in some research before buying a product that you may rely on to save your life. There are lifejackets and buoyancy aids of varying prices and effectiveness on the market, and increasing reports of products available online that aren’t up to scratch or haven’t been tested to European or International specifications.

Collectively lifejackets and buoyancy aids are referred to as Personal Floatation Devices or PFDs; choosing the right one is essential if it’s to be of any use in a life-threatening event. Though many think any PFD is going to hold them up in the water that may not be the case.
