Pyrotechnic Flares

Here's a short distress flare guide:

Red Hand Flare:
A close range distress signal that is used to pinpoint your position, day or night.
Parachute Flare:
Used for long range distress signalling up to 10 miles in daylight and up to 40 miles at night.

Where should I store distress flares?

Distress flares should be stored in an easy to access location that is cool, dry and clearly marked. The last thing you want is to be frantically searching for your flares in an emergency.

What flares do I need on my boat?

The flares you require is dependant on how far offshore you will be sailing. If you are sailing offshore, you will not need an inshore flare pack - the offshore set will be suffice.

We sell pre made distress flare packs for coastalinshore and offshore sailing for added convenience.
