LED flare/torch

Yachting Monthly - - TECHNICAL -

One last item I’d like to have on me if I’m in the wa­ter would be an LED flare or very bright LED torch. Say­ing that, all this elec­tronic kit has to be stowed some­where and I’d rather not be walk­ing around the deck look­ing like a mod­ern po­lice of­fi­cer with things dan­gling from my waist ready to get snagged by any one of a hun­dred bits of deck gear around me. Prob­a­bly the best so­lu­tion is to wear a head torch with built-in strobe at night and in fog. I know this sounds a lit­tle ex­ces­sive, but since test­ing a bunch of them some time ago and found some that are so light and com­fort­able that I find it easy to for­get I’m wear­ing one. Dur­ing the day I keep it in­side the com­pan­ion­way, next to my diver’s knife.
