Kannad Marine, a business of the Orolia Group (NYSE Alternext Paris – FR0010501015 – ALORO) is delighted to announce that the crew aboard Arbella, an Oyster 57 participating in the 27th Atlantic Rally For Cruisers (ARC), is equipped with its award-winning Kannad Marine SafeLink R10 SRS (Survivor Recovery System).

Commenting on the race, Arbella owner and skipper, Michael J. Wallace, said “While the ARC is intended to be a friendly 2,800 nautical mile journey, as the captain my primary concern is the safety of of everyone onboard throughout the journey. Providing each member of the crew with a Kannad Marine SafeLink R10 adds an extra measure of confidence that I am making use of the most current and reliable MOB technology available.”

The multi award winning Kannad Marine SafeLink R10 is worn on a lifejacket and activated by simply sliding off the safety tab and lifting an arming cap to deploy the antenna. This unique product sends structured alert messages, GPS position and a special identity code directly to AIS  receivers within (approximately) a four mile radius. The accuracy of data is guaranteed thanks to the unique inbuilt high precision GPS receiver which updates every 60 seconds. With precise location, bearing and range data given, fellow crew members or nearby sailors’ AIS enabled receivers have all the information they need to locate the position of the person in difficulty and effect a speedy recovery.


The R10 SRS can also be professionally fitted to a lifejacket so that it automatically activates whenever the lifejacket is inflated. A flashing LED light aids location at night. It is guaranteed to transmit continuously for 24 hours and has a seven year battery storage life. The R10 is made of ultra durable ABS, and is waterproof to 5 metres.


With dimensions of 27 x 47 x 124mm and weighing in at just 120g, this compact and lightweight AIS beacon is the must-have personal device for all safety conscious sailors.

The SafeLink R10 Survivor Recovery System is supplied with attachment clips and lanyard, and is available now with a retail price of £199 + VAT/ €225 + TAX.
