ERGOFIT 50N EX SHORTLISTED FOR YACHTS & YACHTING KIT INNOVATION AWARD
24 November 2016

We are delighted that the Crewsaver ErgoFit 50N EX has been nominated for the highly respected Yachts & Yachting Kit Innovation Award 2017 and we need your vote!

 The ErgoFit 50N EX ‘High Impact’ buoyancy aid was developed with Artemis Racing for the 35th America’s Cup and includes a multitude of safety and performance features. Forcefield armour protects the wearer against impact, Spare Air attachment points facilitates the use of a hands free air supply system whilst integrated airflow technology built into the structure of the buoyancy aid allows for the efficient transfer of heat. All of this is incorporated into a low profile and ergonomic Fusion 3D design to reduce snag risk to provide the ultimate in unhindered performance.

“With foiling becoming ever more popular we at Crewsaver think it is important that everybody has the opportunity to benefit from the same advanced safety and performance technology as an America’s Cup sailor.” – Hannah Burywood, Marketing Manager

“Technology and innovation in the America’s Cup have taken a huge step forward over the last few years, but the technology for commercially available safety equipment did not meet our team's needs.  With Crewsaver, we wanted to find a supplier able to develop a best in class series of equipment that meets the demands of this new era of performance sailing. Crewsaver’s dedication to this project has impressed us all and we are extremely proud of the collaboration.” - Iain Percy, Team Manager for Artemis Racing

“We understand the dangers of racing these high performance catamarans at 40+ knots, and the safety of the guys on board is our number one priority which is why Crewsaver are our number one choice.” – Anthony Nossiter, Safety Officer for Artemis Racing
