Exposure Lights St Vaast Race
Many thanks to Exposure Lights for sponsoring their first race with JOG and for providing excellent prizes for the après-sail party in the delightful port of St Vaast on Saturday 5th May. While the draw of the seafood restaurants and the traditional Saturday JOG party were perhaps instrumental in attracting over 40 entrants, first the fleet had to get there and through the lock gate before closing time.
Exposure Lights are proud to announce their sponsorship of the Junior Offshore Group (JOG) St Vaast Race. The race, which will be named the Exposure Lights JOG St Vaast Race, is a popular one normally attracting around 45 boats, and finishing with a relaxed competitors party in the beautiful French finishing port.
Exposure Lights are supporting the SORC solo offshore sailors with their safety and night vision for the 2018 season and the SORC Round the Rock Race.
Exposure Lights are delighted to announce their support of Alan Roberts (28) for his 2018 campaign to race in the La Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro Race, which starts in August.
Alan comments, “I simply LOVE the Exposure Lights. They are the lightest and most logical, user-friendly lights out there! Figaro racing is simply full-on. The ability to trim the sails with strong lights is great, and also to use them as an all-round tool while sailing in close-quarters. It is nice to have a head torch that does not destroy your night vision; that is strong enough to work around the boat at night, as well as trim the sails with the white light when required. It’s also a huge comfort to know you have the back-up, if needed, of highly visible and powerful strobe in a worse case scenario of falling into the sea.
