SAIL’s annual Pittman Innovation Awards recognize the most innovative products in the sailboat market. For 2011, SAIL’s editors have selected 15 groundbreaking new sailing products. “It was more difficult than ever for our judges to narrow down such a strong field of new products. Here’s proof that the marine industry is forging ahead with research and development,” said Editor-in-Chief Peter Nielsen. Pittman Innovation Awards coverage appears on page 66 of the February SAIL issue and will be featured at SAIL’s Innovation Station during the Strictly Sail Chicago Boat Show, January 27-January 30, 2011.
Two of the winners are the Dometic Marine SailVac uses as little as a pint of water per flush which are available on all Beneteau USA models and the Dock & Go which is currently available on the SENSE 50 and soon to be other Beneteau models.
