Re: Heard of laser flare lights?

In UK The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) have published this
RYA pressing for change in carriage requirement for flares | News | News & Events | RYA

Quote:
The RYA is pressing the MCA (Maritime & Coastguard Agency) to review the carriage requirement for pyrotechnic flares and to recognise the modern technologies that are now available for distress alerting and locating.

“In today’s modern age there is no compelling case to support the mandatory requirement of flares as a practical and useful method of initiating a distress alert and location” Stuart Carruthers RYA Cruising Manager.
