Hi Jaques,

Having sat in a B23 for several years, the idea of using an open face helmet is definitely not a good one.

I would suggest the best full face helmet you can afford, with a good thick visor and small aperture.

Just my opinion.

Adam for the lifejackets.


Looking forward to you coming to 3C
