I believe ISAF is moving towards requiring a quick-release feature on harnesses and lifejackets. Also saw a posting suggesting that a spelunker''s harness worked well. (More akin to sailor''s needs than a mountaineer''s harness, was the idea. )

I have done 15000 miles of mostly open ocean single handed sailing.What I use for a harness is a sky diving harness with the containers removed.(I am a certified skydiver D 18325).the harware is stainless steel,there are leg straps,chest sraps, and all sorts of comfortable padding.It also doubles as a bosun harness for going up the mast.I also keep attached a co2 activated pfd,just as if I was skydiving near an open body of water.these harnesses also have a neat feature that you wont find in any marine store type harness.there is a cut away handle that when pulled,releases you from ,well,in this case,the life line.you can get one real cheap,I mean go to a place where people skydive,(a drop zone)put up an add on a bulletin board where people buy and sell there stuff.you are bound to find an old harness in excellent condition for a negotiable price.offer beer or jump tickets.explain to them what you need it for.they will come to you.
