Yak Horizon Drysuit – Review

This is the Yak Horizon Drysuit it is available only in red/black. The Horizon is made from hard wearing 3-layer breathable material with Cordura re-enforcement on the knee and bum.

We received a large drysuit just after lockdown here in UK began, but despite the restrictions have managed to get some time on the water using the suit.

Yak Horizon Drysuit – Review

At 6ft 2″ with a 42″ chest, and size 10 (UK) feet the large Horizon drysuit fits well both whilst standing and probably more importantly whilst sitting in a boat. I tend to wear large drysuits or drytops from pretty much any manufacturer and the sizing here is bang on.

1st Green Race Training Lap

Every year I am always so fired up for the first long boat training lap on the Green. This year I was especially fired up because normally I have to do my first lap and shake off the cobwebs just a few days before the race, this year I got to do mine a whole month before. Although since then there has hardly been any days to do more training, it has helped being able to spend more time in a long boat than I normally would get before the race. This wasn’t the Sub 4 debut run I was looking for, but pulling out of the start line for the first time gets me every time. Now only a few weeks away, let’s hope I can get some more laps and clean up the lines!
