North Sails introduced STOP TABS at the beginning of this year to help sailors comply with ISAF Rule 55 (a competitor may not intentionally throw trash in the water) by offering an alternative to rubber bands or wool ties to band your downwind sails. Through April 22 (Earth Day) we are offering free STOP TABS installation for the first five sailors at each North Sails location in North America. We’ll also send you a free North hat for helping save the environment! Make your appointment today: http://goo.gl/ER5CnR
Editor’s Note: The 2013-2016 edition of The Racing Rules of Sailing includes Rule 55 (Trash Disposal), which states that: “A competitor shall not intentionally put trash in the water.”Click here for full explanation.
