Yago and Klaus Lange are sailing in the 49er and are explaining in this tech update why they find the Racing Buoyancy Aid the most comfortable to sail with.

MAXIME JONKER: "IT GIVES ME A LOT OF FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT IN THE BOAT"
‘I use the Wave Buoyancy Aid already for many years. Because the jacket is short it gives me a lot of freedom of movement in the boat, for example when ducking under the boom. The jacket also has a big pocket so I can bring some energy bars with me out on the water!’
MEDIUM CUT FIT. IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS. CROTCH STRAP WITH BUCKLE AND ADJUSTABLE BUCKLES ON SIDE
The Brand Buoyancy Aid is an entry-level buoyancy aid; ideal for sailing schools and beginners. It's designed with different colour size labels for different sizes to fit with our ‘rental’ program, for easy size selection.
MEDIUM CUT FIT, SIDE ZIP & WAIST STRAP WITH BUCKLE
The Ultimate Buoyancy Aid comes in three bright (safety) color ways. With its adjustable shoulder straps and side entry YKK zipper the buoyancy aid is easy to adjust to any type of body. The waist strap with buckle helps you to tighten the buoyancy aid. On the chest you find one big front pocket to store essential items as a safety knife, energy bars or more!
MEDIUM CUT FIT, COMFORTABLE WIDE SHOULDER STRAPS. OPENING FOR TRAPEZE HOOK
The Racing Buoyancy Aid is a super thin jacket with an opening for the trapeze hook. This opening makes it easy to clip on the trapeze and assures your Buoyancy Aid to stay low around the harness. The buoyancy aid has adjustable side straps and a YKK side zipper entry for optimal comfort. Because of its reflective details the jacket is well visible out on the water!
YAGO AND KLAUS LANGE: "MOST COMFORTABLE BUOYANCY AID TO SAIL WITH"
"The Racing Buoyancy Aid is super thin which makes it really comfortable to sail with. The hole to put the trapeze hook through is on a perfect height and makes sure your buoyancy aid doesn’t move up and there is enough space to clip on quickly and easy on the trapeze. Together with the straps to fit the jacket ideally around your body it’s for us definitely the most comfortable buoyancy aid to sail with!"
