2019 BYA winner: Zhik T3 Quick-Release Harness

Like all the best ideas, you can’t believe someone didn’t think of it before. Zhik’s T3 quick-release harness is fastened using Velcro straps and a clip, rather than the tie-ins of the traditional trapeze harness, meaning you can escape from it in no more than a few seconds. When your dinghy has turned turtle and you can’t lift yourself off the trapeze hook, or you’re being dragged in the water, or are trapped under the boat, the T3 is a potential life-saver.
