Formula should be fine !!

This is the spec for Powerboat racing, cant imagine ski Racing is much different.
For "Orange or Yellow" you can read and "RED"

E29. RACING VESTS Racing Vests must be worn at all times by all persons on board whilst on the water . The efficiency of a racing vest is the responsibility of the wearer, but the following conditions must be complied with: (1) All vests must have an inherent buoyancy of at least 16kg/33lbs (150 Newton) and shall be fitted with collars. Boats with restraints refer to para E7/508. (2) Lacing ties and/or straps shall be adequate and in good condition. All straps shall be at least 40mm wide and have a minimum breaking strain of 500kg. There must be lifting straps at the front or on the shoulders. (3) Zips are not permitted as the sole means of fastening a racing vest. Where zips are used as an ancillary means of closure they must be in working order.
29
March 2009
(4) Tears or rips or bad repairs through which buoyancy material may leak out are not be permitted. (5) Vests must be at least 70% orange or yellow or have orange or yellow panels. (6) Vests must have a lifting eye or strap attached to the main harness. (7) Vests must not be able to ride up over the wearer‟s head, and must be secure to the body. (8) The disposition of the solid buoyancy must be such as to ensure that an unconscious person will float face up in the water. (9) The vest must have impact protection material covering the back.

you need a letter from the manufacturer to say its ok to paint plus proof they are approved if the stickers have been removed
