Very interesting read but seems to be some duff data from the MAIB!

I know of 3 makes of helmet designed for marine use.
The MIAB state that Gecko are the only ones in the UK.

All the sae very interesting

Regards

It is all related to the same incident.
The good news is I believe Ben has recently left hospital to go back home.

I think the pertinent bit is this:

Quote:
The RYA said it was conducting an internal investigation, the results of which would be passed to the MAIB, and added: "We understand there is no evidence to suggest the helmet caused or contributed to the injuries sustained and we hope this will be clarified in due course."
