It says "high energy watersports".
 
I guess us dinghy sailors need not worry about  it then ;-)
 
Looks perfect for my windsurfing son.

I doubt most people would notice. If you had the drinks pack (with sraw) it would be a little more obvious. And if you didn't have the drinks pack you'd have a short protest hearing if someone did kick up a fuss.
 
So a windsurfer or kite surfer (it says "kite" on it, that's the market it is targetting) that happened to be doing a bit of dinghy racing with the drinks pack removed is fully compliant with the rules. No harm done. If you're buying a BA purely for dinghy racing I can see no reason to buy the "Hydr8" BA.

That's not a good fry up, not even first breakfast

There's nothing that f*cks me off more in the world than a crap fry-up......

fry-ups must include more than one sausage, and never be advertised as sausages plural, only to deposit a single sausage upon the plate that arrives to the table.  I will phone Trading Standards on the spot under such circumstances.  It's a moral outrage!

They must also contain black pudding, foodstuff of the Gods.
