Navigator seat cushion - Cube 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm
INNOVATION: medical research in the field of pressure sores now makes it possible to offer the covering of navigator seats and seat shells...
Skippers in ULTIME class, IMOCA class, Class 40, Ocean Fifty, will be able to manage their resting time and their sleep/recovery time phases, in optimal conditions of comfort in their seats-hulls during their offshore races.
We had the opportunity to meet some skippers... before the departure of the Route du Rhum - 2023 Edition - during the 12 days before the departure in Saint Malo.
We wondered how they managed their rest/sleep time, and their time spent at the chart table, in case of strong swell with impressive speeds... "It's a beating"...they tell me... "We are well shaken"!
We came back the next day with a cushion... We explained to 2 skippers the material - made of polyurethane fiber - which has the characteristic of "cushioning well" and staying dry, even in wet conditions .
The cushion remains dry and comfortable...
We asked them what was the next race after the Route du Rhum. They answered: Transat Jacques Vabre, Jules Vernes Trophy, Vendée Globe, etc...
We thanked them, we took their contact details, and we told them that they would have an answer for their helm seats and their hull seats, well before the start of the Vendée Globe, at a very attractive price, so that each skipper can comfortably benefit from his rest periods even when it's hard, for the recovery periods called "micro-sleep".
We are the 1st of May 2023 and the "10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm cube" to be stuck with a double-sided tape on its seat-shell is finally available for sale.
Depending on the shape of your navigator seat or your seat-shell you will glue between 30 and 60 cubes...depending on the comfort you wish to obtain, in short "well padded according to your ergonomics". You can space the cubes according to the desired comfort.
And you do it yourself with quality double-sided tape. Doing it yourself is the cheapest way, and at least, you are sure of a job well done, so that it holds well in the spray...thanks to the brand "SCOTCH EXTREM" that you can find at Leroy-Merlin or in any DIY store.
To try the cushion-cube 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm, the best is to order a batch of 6 cubes, or by multiple of 6 cubes and to make your own seat-boat, where you will use between 30 and 60 cubes according to your desired comfort and ergonomics.
For those who would see other uses for these cushion-cubes, yes they are very numerous...
Concerning your physical safety at the level of the face during offshore racing competitions, "when it beats and you are at your card table..."...better to stick one or 2 cubes, at the places where you risk to hit...
We have been told that from time to time, some skippers have to be stitched up, as it is so hard...
Think of your benches, benches, and cubes to cushion yourself when you are lying down, and that it beats... The cubes, it maintains...
These cubes are suitable for all sailboats participating in offshore races such as :
- Vendée Globe
- Route du Rhum
- Transat Jacques Vabre
- Solitaire du Figaro
- Jules Verne Trophy
- Mini Transat
- Volvo Ocean Race
- America's Cup

Congratulations to all the skippers for your offshore races which make us vibrate!
