Floatation

When I was at Cowes we put a inflated bladder in the nose of Going Lean. It sounded like this was something stipulated by the racing rules. Can you advise me on this and where to acquire such an item? I think its a great idea!

Website is a touch out of date I'm afraid - actually about to be taken down to eb re-placed with a new site soon(ish).

We do some smallish bouyancy bags (approx 100 litres each) - but should have some larger ones this winter. Can also get specials made up.

PM / e-mail me and will get more details to you. Just about to go to France for 4 days so maybe next week.
