Safety Kit (horseshoe lifebuoy with 30 m line and light)
This safety kit is carried at the stern of the yacht in order to quickly have rescue equipment at hand during a man-overboard manoeuvre. It consists of an orange horseshoe lifebuoy, a 30 m long, buoyant lifeline, a signal light with SOLAS approval and a yellow plastic bag (closed with Velcro), which can be attached to the pushpit with three straps. The bag protects the ring, leash and signal light from salt water and UV radiation so that everything really works in an emergency.
The horseshoe lifebuoy is made of closed cell foam. The orange outer cover made of plastic fabric can be easily removed for cleaning purposes thanks to an integrated zip fastener. The horseshoe ring has a leash running around it with a nylon snap hook. Due to the flexible opening angle, it adapts well to body size.
The signal light requires 4 x 1.5 volt batteries to operate (not included!).
