Over 150 CYCA members and guests were showcased the latest marine safety equipment, heard informative presentations from suppliers and saw live demonstrations on how many of the latest and greatest personal protection equipment operate.

Displays from Sturrocks, Harken/Spinlock, Adventure Safety, the Defib Shop, SOS Marine, Great Circle,, Mobialarm, Pacific Sailing School, GME, HypoHoist, Survitec Group, Sea Rug, AllSat Communications and RMS allowed all attendees to inspect the latest safety and personal protection equipment.

The highlight of the day was the "in pond live demonstrations" which included inflating a liferaft and danbuoy and from the marina the flare demonstrations where volunteers were, under the careful guidance of Pacific Sailing School, instructed on how to let off a flare!

All who attended thought that the live demonstrations of the safety equipment were invaluable.

The CYCA SOLAS Trusts raffle that was conducted on the day raised over $650. Thanks to SOS Marine, Marine Safety Works, Pacific Sailing School, BoatCrewGear, Adventure Safety, Harken/Spinlock for their generous donation of prizes.
