Sailing Team

Recycling Sails One Regatta At A Time

Founded by Co-Captains Erica Beck Spencer and Jess Harris, the Sea Bags Women’s Sailing Team is recognized as one of the leading USA contenders in J/24 regattas. Racing together since 2015, the Sea Bags Women's Sailing Team is comprised of eleven sailors ages 16 to 57.

"These women are role models, competitive sailors and true advocates for everything we believe in. Their authenticity and love of sailing make us natural partners." -Beth Shissler, COO, Sea Bags

The members of the Sea Bags Women's Sailing Team are also champions for the environment and the oceans they sail. They share with sailing and regatta communities around the country the necessity of saving sails from landfills and the importance of recycling and upcycling sailcloth. Wherever the team travels, they share their racing experiences and encourage young and older alike to get involved in the sport of sailing.
