Bouyancy Aids

The time has finally come to teach the pups how to handle a sailing dinghy (now they've sort of mastered power!)

Anyway I'm in the market for 2 x buoyancy aids for 10-11 year olds. Will also be handy for doing some ringo-ing this summer.

Any recommendations for these weight 50Kg+, or any anyone with any 2nd hand?
