Our sailing racing marks offer a real price breakthrough compared to other marks and sailing buoys commonly available. This now makes it more cost effective for clubs to have their own race marks for racing and training, leaving more funds for other kit. These buoys are also commonly used for triathlon course marking.
Our race marks are made from boat grade PVC coated polyester tarpaulin. This buoy should last for many seasons and be easy to repair should you accidentally puncture it. The marks are highly visible at sea and are of a colour that is particularly visible in natural light.
Each racing mark has three metal rings at the bottom to fasten a weight and ground tackle to. Tests have shown that a weight in the region of 5-7kg will keep the marks upright in most conditions.
Our racing marks feature radio frequency welded seams to ensure an airtight seal and inflation is done via an industry standard boston valve on the top of the buoy. This makes it suitable for inflation by most hand, foot, or electric pumps.
Racing marks should never be completely inflated on warm days as the sun’s temperature will cause the air to expand and potentially rupture the material. A small amount of expansion room should be left.
We recommend that these marks are not left out permanently and are brought in after each session. These are Racing Marks not permanent buoyage.
