Last year some friends of mine were flying across the channel in a 2 seater glider. For safety they were wearing lifejackets, then parachutes and finally the seat belts. Half way across the channel the rear pilot had the lifejacket inflate underneath the straps and parachute harness. Luckily it did not interfere with the stick so they were able to land safely.
