Offshore racing crews are obliged to use professional AIS rescue devices for Category 2 races

Weatherdock wants to put sailors? attention to a rule of the World Sailing Offshore Special Regulations.

The Weatherdock AIS MOB beacon easyONE-DSC symbols the choice for participants of RORC races. The AIS MOB unit comes up with the best performance figures in the market e.g. transmission power, battery lifetime and combined technologies such as AIS, DSC and a bright red electronic LED flare for better visibility.

The easyONE-DSC was specially designed for the usage with nearly every automatic life jacket to suit racing conditions without hampering movement. The big advantage of the easyONE-DSC is that the device needs no fixation on the blatter or the tube of the jacket. There is just an insert between the folded blatter of the jacket and a knot with the security rope at a hook ? that?s it.

In case of a person falling overboard, the AIS MOB easyONE-DSC will be activated immediately by water contact, the antenna comes into an upright position and a first DSC alert is send within seconds to alert the crew. Once the GPS fix is done, the next DSC alert with current Position is send. Parallel an AIS emergency telegram is send to every AIS receiver within vicinity of up to 7 nautical miles and will be updated every minute with current position.

The palm-sized and easy-to-use AIS MOB easyONE-DSC is presenting the top-level in AIS MOB market with highest radiated transmission power (1W) and long battery capacity. It enhance chances of survival for a man overboard by alerting via DSC and AIS parallel and better visibility in bad light conditions by red LED flare.
