Buoyancy Aids

Buoyancy Aids 

Whether you are new to the world of sailing or are already a sailing expert, you will probably know how essential buoyancy aids are. Buoyancy Aids are an important piece of equipment that will keep you afloat should (or when!) you fall into the water. Often confused with life jackets, buoyancy aids are designed to allow you to swim comfortably when you fall into the water. Please be aware that buoyancy aid jackets are not for adults or children that are completely unable to swim. 

You may not always need a buoyancy aid, sometimes a life jacket may be more suitable. For certain activities such as dinghy sailing, kayaking or paddle boarding, wearing a buoyancy aid will provide an excellent level of safety.  

Buoyancy Aids UK

At Pirates Cave Chandlery, we have a wide range of buoyancy aid jackets available for people of all ages. Our buoyancy aids are sourced from some of the best manufacturers worldwide, including Crewsaver, Marine Pool, Spinlock, Seago and Besto. 

Depending on your sailing activities, you can purchase various types of buoyancy aids; from jackets to alternative flotation devices. We also take into consideration your travelling speed, with products available for those travelling at both high speeds and low speeds. When investing in a buoyancy aid vest, you also want to make sure that you and your passengers benefit from 360 degree impact protection, as well as reflective detailing for visibility and effectively placed straps to protect children. 

Depending on your activity, you may want to consider purchasing an alternative to a buoyancy aid jacket, which is a belt-pack flotation aid. A product such as this is both compact and lightweight, only releasing from the belt-pack when operated. This is ideal for preventing any interference with your activities, as well as remaining deflated for convenience.
