Sail magazine’s annual Pittman Innovation Awards recognize outstanding new and innovative products in the sailboat market.

Sail’s team of judges — executive editor Adam Cort, cruising editor Charles J. Doane, technical editor Jay Paris, electronics editor Ben Ellison and editor-at-large David Schmidt — selected 15 top new products after poring over hundreds of products at the fall boat shows.

"The field was packed with more innovative products than we'd seen in the marine industry for a while," Cort said in a statement.

This year's Overall Winner, B&G's Sailsteer and Sailtime software, was selected by a panel of judges that included Nigel Calder (systems expert and author), Tom Burden (author of West Marine "advisor series" articles) and Peter Nielsen (editor-in-chief, Sail).

The 2014 Pittman Innovation Awards are covered in the February issue of Sail and are also featured on Sail’s website.
