Racing Marks

Racing marks can vary in size from the largest 3m diameter buoy right down to the 0.4m diameter buoy depending on the site conditions and size of racing boats.

Typically a yacht club is looking for buoys at the smaller lower cost end of the scale. The following buoys have proved suitable as racing marks.

T 1200
The T 1200 is a new buoy with a 1.2m diameter hull but with a more substantial daymark than other markers such as the navigation buoy and also a heavier central structure and keel to give stability. Weighing 170kg it has a focal plane of 1.8m but the wider daymark body gives it a greater visual presence.

The ES 1700 Spar Buoy and M 1200 are also available as alternative buoys for use as racing marks.
