As part of Vaikobi's Sponsorship of the 2013 Ocean Series, Vaikobi has supplied the SLS approved Hi Vis Competitor vests for this years rounds to ensure race management can keep track of competitors in all conditions.
Vaikobi has worked hard with Athletes to provide a lightweight and breathable solution for what is a critical safety element for Ocean Racing. The Competitors vest allows for ease of movement and fits snuggly over the PFD, without restricting the movement and temperature regulation for the Athlete.
Feedback after round 1 was extremely positive with many competitors singing the praise of the vest, claiming that it is the most comfortable event vest supplied in the history of the Ocean Series.
Event Director- Peter Hatfield commented that "It was fantastic to be able to keep track of all competitors in the lumpy conditions we enjoyed today. The quality of the Vaikobi gear is second to none and we are stoked to have them come on board this year to supply this critical safety item".
