These marks were designed through a collaboration between Allan VanNess, Commodore of the Pacific Northwest Model Yacht Club, and Will Lesh, designer of the Tippecanoe boats.
The marks are convenient and easy to transport. They are very throwable and can be thrown out as far as 30 yards while the end of the line to retrieve the mark remains on shore. The retrieval line is nylon which sinks after it has been in the water for a couple of minutes. The colored flags at the top of the marks along with the orange float collars make the marks easy to see in all conditions. The different bright colors of the flags make it easy to call out the course so everyone can understand which buoys to round in what order. The bright flags add to the festive and colorful aspect of holding a regatta and are about 11 inches long.
Each kit contains the materials for 5 marks, including 5 brightly colored flags in green, orange, pink, red, and yellow, anchor weights, nylon chord, collar foam, and spools for winding up the anchor lines. The Racing Flags and Marks Kit is $79.00.
