We went behind the scenes with Official Lifejacket Supplier, Spinlock, to take a look at what goes into producing the Deckvest VITO lifejackets which will be worn on the Clipper 2019-20 Race.

Based in Cowes, Isle of Wight, Spinlock has over thirty years experience of designing and manufacturing personal lifejacket harness solutions alongside rope holding equipment for sailing boats from dinghies up to the largest superyachts.

The Deckvest VITO uses the latest Spinlock technology. James Hall, Spinlock Sales and Marketing Manager, said: “The Clipper Race really is one of the most demanding environments and races for our equipment. Therefore our technology is proven over hundreds of thousands of miles.

“We are really looking forward to seeing our products out on the ocean race track where it will give us great feedback to help us keep making the best performance harnesses for sailors.”
