Technical information


It took 18 months to develop this buoyancy life jacket. We designed a 50 Newton buoyancy life jacket for sailing clubs, taking into account the constraints of intensive use to create a light, compact, and robust product. The French Sailing Federation (FFV) and three partner clubs contributed their expertise in order to design a product suitable for everyone, from beginners to experienced sailors, not to mention sailing instructors.


The shorter cut of the life jacket and the multiple polyethylene foam panels make it very light for unrestricted use. The plastic buckles on each side of the life jacket are designed so they can be replaced if necessary.
The crotch strap, which is not included in the black life jacket, enables all instructors and managers to equip their sailing clubs.


Thanks to Dope-dyed technology, a fabric made from dye integrated into the material of the yarn, enabling a significant reduction in water consumption during the production of the yarn, and two-tone textile, made from a weave of partially dyed yarns, we were able to reduce the CO2 emissions linked to the production of this new life jacket by 20%, compared to the previous version.


On the left shoulder of the life jacket, we added a loop to enable the VHF to be attached. This option proves particularly useful for sailing instructors or when sailing motorboats.


This buoyancy life jacket is compatible with all trapeze belts and windsurfing harnesses on the market. The hook loop prevents the life jacket from rising unexpectedly by itself.


A 50 N life jacket should be used in dinghies, catamarans, stand up paddleboards, windsurfers, and canoes/kayaks. It can also be used on board yachts up to 6 miles from the coast, provided it is worn while sailing (division 240).
