Our 1.9m large tomato racing marks buoys offer a real price breakthrough compared to other sailing marks commonly available. This now makes it more cost effective for clubs to have their own sailing marks for racing and training, leaving more funds for other kit.
Each tomato racing mark has a metal ring at the bottom which a small weight (2kg is normally enough) attaches to help keep the buoy upright. The broad base of the buoy helps make it easier to keep upright than other, thinner buoys. The buoys have a handles at the top to aid in recovery from a boat.
Our racing marks feature radio frequency welded seams to ensure an airtight seal and inflation is done via an industry standard raft valve on the top of the buoy. This makes it suitable for inflation by most hand, foot, or electric pumps.
Racing marks for sailing 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. They are not permanent buoys or channel markers. Metal clips should not be used to attach to the metal D rings on the buoys. ONLY rope should be tied to them as metal on metal will wear the attachments due to the constant motion on the sea.
We recommend that these marks are not left out permanently and are brought in after each session. These are Racing Marks not permanent buoyage.
