Adrian is correct when he says it is discreet (unlike his crew Kati who attracted a great deal of attention, she was lovely and we all told she was helming) however back to bouyancy, bear in mind in-sail bouyancy is great untill you start reefing then it loses some of its leverage as it comes down the mast with the sail head.

Point taken but then again the foam in the sail head can’t spring a leak. And what happens if you capsize a second time with a self inflating balloon? The CO2 cartridge is then empty or?
