sailed across the harbour, some require delivery over thousands of miles, some people are looking to get used to a boat
they have just bought, and to get to grips with the Rule

Safety Equipment & Communications:
I carry my own satellite communications
, which allow text conversation to/from land and can be set up to automatically send a position update at set intervals to a group of email
addresses or phone
numbers. This keeps you, your family
& friends in touch with where we are, and through text conversation.
Generally I carry two offshore
'hazardous duty' lifejackets, two strobes, two sets of body harnesses and tails.
