Racing Sailboat

Powered by TAP products, Andy Vare and 1988 Olympic Silver Medalist, Will Baylis, practice their racing skills on the International Star Class in hopes of securing a berth at the next Olympic Games.

Baylis and Vare use TAP products extensively, from specialty cloths to premium resins to vinyl letters to keep their Star Class at top-regatta strength. By using the full range of 3M polishes and cleaners the Star Class is always ready for competition. To reduce wind-resistance, they polish the entire boat with Brillianze. Fairing putty, Seaboard, Delrin, and polycarbonates are among the other TAP products frequently used by these sailors.
