At night, it often feels like you are sailing blind. Photoluminescent reflectors were innovated for the Musto offshore sailing kit in the Volvo Ocean Race in 2011-12. These reflectos capture the energy of light sources during the day and release that energy as a glow during the night.
THE BENEFITS OF PHOTOLUMINESCENT REFLECTORS
- Wearing Photoluminescent strips allows greater visibility in low light. This is especially important in competitive sailing where teams need to be able to see each other
- 360° visibility at night
- Long-lasting glow
