Sail magazine announced the winners of its annual Pittman Innovation Awards, which recognize the most innovative products in the sailboat market.

For 2011, Sail's editors have selected 15 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," editor-in-chief Peter Nielsen said in a statement.

Pittman Innovation Awards coverage appears in the February issue of Sail and will be featured at the magazine's Innovation Station Jan. 27-30 during the Strictly Sail Chicago Boat Show.
