About Us

j24-awards-sbst.jpg

We are the Sea Bags Women’s Sailing Team. A group of strong, determined, experienced, passionate, racing champions who take the thrills and incredible challenges of J24 sailboat racing to new heights. We are a close knit group of women ages 16 to 57 who trust and support one another always and especially when the going gets tough.

We know the disappointment of not crossing the finish line first. We also know the extraordinary thrill of victory. In 2017, our team won the prestigious Jaeger Women’s Trophy as the top all-female team in the J/24 World Championships in Ontario, Canada. Our captain Erica received the 2018 J/24 World Championship Top Female Skipper Award.

While these are some of our past accomplishments, every new racing season is a challenge to do better - to be the best racers we can be.

About Sea Bags

In 1999, Sea Bags made a bold commitment to build a trustworthy company with sustainability and US manufacturing at its core by recycling sails into nautically-inspired totes and accessories on the working waterfront in Portland, Maine. Since its founding, Sea Bags has recycled over 700 tons of sailcloth and continues to be a world leader in recycling and repurposing sails that would otherwise end up in landfills. Additionally, Sea Bags deeply believes in giving back to its local community. Sponsoring a women’s team of champion sailors who have deep appreciation and respect for our oceans and environment reaffirms this commitment.

 

Sailing for Sustainability

Sea Bags Women’s Sailing Team is among a growing number of sailors worldwide who are bringing greater attention to the importance of saving our oceans and protecting our environment. Wherever the Sea Bags Women’s Sailing Team races it also raises awareness of Sea Bags’ Sail Trade Program. Through the program, individuals can donate their sails in exchange for Sea Bags’ product. Sails can also be donated through the Sea Bags Women’s Sailing Team to help support them on their journey.
