In the final regatta of the 2021 sailing season, the J/24 East Coast Championships, the Sea Bags Women's Sailing Team capped off the season with a 13th place finish out of 21 boats. Skipper Erica Beck Spencer shares her thoughts on J/24 East Coast Championships, the 2021 season, and what's on the horizon for next year.
It's no secret that our favorite place on earth is a little wharf seated atop the Atlantic Ocean. This wharf has brought us close to individuals from all walks of life – from lobstermen who cruise in and out from our docks with their latest catch, to tourists who excitedly wait in line for their daysail on a historic schooner. And though sometimes we're worlds apart, we are united by one thing: the ocean.
It's clear that at Sea Bags, we enjoy rethinking the way materials can be used, whether turning recycled sail cloth into bags or utilizing an old pea boat and transforming it into a retail store fixture. Reusing materials in our retail stores is one of our primary design elements, and we are always trying to push this concept further. Below are 5 of our favorite recycled materials showcased across our nearly 40 stores.
Once again, on the 3rd Saturday in September, the Sea Bags crew took to the beach to participate in International Coastal Clean-Up Day. The goal is to assist in keeping our coastline and waterways free of trash and debris that can negatively affect the health of our precious coastal ecosystems.
Customers who stumble upon Sea Bags are often surprised to learn that every bag we make uses recycled sail cloth. The applique and printing that we apply to the sail material yields colorful and creative designs that make people question just how many are from recycled material. But the truth is that all of our bags are and have always been crafted only from recycled sail cloth.
Just like wrinkles are a sign of experience and wisdom, our recycled sail cloth has a story to tell about the adventures each sail has seen. The previous life of the sails we reclaim is unique and can be told visually in the character marks found on the sail cloth.
