Offshore Special Regulations Update
New Cat 2 Special Regulations requires personal MOB AIS beacons for every crew member
If you are just about to embark with your crew on one of the major offshore races this summer like next week’s Volvo Round Ireland Race, the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race, or the Rolex Middle Sea Race you’ll have studied World Sailing’s 2018-2019 Offshore Special Regulations and found some new rules. One notable change is the need for every crew member sailing a Category 2 event or above to carry a personal AIS man overboard device.
In order to make your search for a suitable device easier, you will find models from various manufacturers in our shop.
All models can be installed in the lifejacket and also release automatically when properly installed.
