Our 1.8m triangle shaped tetrahedron racing mark offers great value compared to other marks and sailing buoys commonly available.
Each racing buoy has a metal ring at each corner at the bottom of the mark. Small weights can be attached here to help the marks stay upright. The tetrahedron shape is very stable and in some conditions weight may not be required to keep the buoy upright. The buoys have handles at the top to aid in recovery from a boat.
Made from boat grade PVC coated polyester tarpaulin; these buoys 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.
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 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.
These buoys are also commonly used for triathlon course marking and other watersports events.
We recommend that these marks are not left out permanently and are brought in after each session. These are Racing Marks not permanent buoyage.
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.
LOMO logo is printed on one side only leaving the rest of the buoy for possible sponsors logos.
