McMurdo was recognised in the life saving and safety equipment category for its Fast Find 2010. “This recognition has crowned a very good year for McMurdo. The Fast Find 200 series has sold well in excess of targets around the World,” said Jeremy Harrison from McMurdo.

The MUSTO Active Base Layer was honoured. John Clementson from Musto commented: “What we’ve created is a sailing specific technical base layer which has been designed to respond to the body for extended periods of high activity.
