As SAIL's enthusiastic and knowledgeable technical editor, Freeman K. Pittman was one of the those people who left a lasting impression on everyone he met. He's remembered by many in the industry as a true connoisseur of excellence and a keen student of technical innovation in sailing equipment. Freeman passed away in 1996, and since then SAIL has worked to keep his memory alive by seeking out the new products on the North American market that most embody the qualities he valued. For 2005, we asked SAIL editors Josh Adams and Mark Corke, electronics editor Ben Ellison, and technical consultant Jay E. Paris to identify some of the best and brightest new gear in the sailing marketplace.
