We tried every brand of pyrotechnic flare on the market during a USCG Sea Survival course in Seattle. I wouldn’t want to go to sea with any other flares than Pains Wessex. They were so bright we had to look away! Looking online for suppliers led me to Drew Marine Signal & Safety and I am very grateful for the company’s support!
The Spinlock Deck Pro harness and Spinlock Deckvest 5D Pro were invaluable during my row across the Atlantic in 2010! Thank you Spinlock for being onboard once again!
The SWITLIK Aviation ISPLR one-(wo)man liferaft is the lightest, most compact liferaft on the market. It’s so neat that carrying it to my boat makes me feel like I’m in the movie Top Gun! I also have the U-Zip-It survival suit, custom made for me!
Ocean Signal’s SafeSea® EPIRB is a product I feel I can rely on with my life! I like to prepare for every eventuality and, in case I become separated from my boat, I will be wearing my Ocean Signal rescueME PLB on my lifejacket at all times. I am really grateful to Ocean Signal for supporting me on this expedition and helping to keep me safe!
Spectra and Katadyn are brands I trust, a trust built up over 10 years of use on a whole range of boats. I’ve relied on Spectra watermakers for my life – as my only source of drinking water. For this expedition, the desalinator is one of my most vital pieces of equipment onboard. I wouldn’t want to go offshore with any other brand!
