A total new concept for sailboat racing, campaigning and brand promotion - Sea Bags Sailing Team. Sea Bags has a long history of direct support both financial and with product to various sailing regattas and sailing teams including the 2009 J/24 Nationals & 2013 J/24 North Americans & the Offshore New England Championships and many more. This current concept was born out of past team sponsorships and specifically a J/24 team in the 2015 World Championships that received an excellent brand awareness and sales response. The concept - create a team of sailors who represent various one-design classes that will be sailing year round to promote the process of recycling sails to better the environment.
J/24 Sailor and Hobart All-American, Carter White, from Portland, Maine who has been instrumental in some of the regatta and team sponsorships that Sea Bags has supported is acting as Team Manager. Carter will be structuring and picking the one-designs that will be represented as well as the sailors. Carter will also be responsible for promoting the team and coordinating the team's news and media. Carter will also be responsible for representing the team in the J/24 class where he has been racing successfully for a number of years.
Over the next couple of months Carter will be recruiting sailors to represent the J/70, Laser, Lightning, Optimist and possibly others. Stay tuned if you would like to be involved with the team or would like to submit an application to be a team member.
