‘A driven visionary, just keep him off the subject of where elite sailing should be going’ – Andrew Palfrey; ‘I remember us beating into 80kt to Kerguelen to fix our broken Maxi... the boy’s done well’ – Garfield Smith; ‘Mark Turner and traditionalist on the same page, come on!’ – Charles Darbyshire; ‘Mark’s done so much for sailing, creating the Extreme 40 as a spectator series has clearly steered the AC’ – Richard Butcher. ‘“Well if that’s what you all think then we might as well all go home now”... Miss ya!!!’ – Emily Caroe.
Sailor of the Month GORDON INGATE (AUS)
Seventy five years after he started racing Gordon Ingate last month won two of three races at the Sydney Gold Cup series in Dragons, only losing the third race by 5 seconds. Over the course of his long sailing life Ingate has represented Australia in the Olympics, the Admiral’s Cup and the America’s Cup as the helmsman of the magnificent Alan Payne designed 12 Metre Gretel II when she took part in her third Cup campaign in 1977
Sailor of the month PHIL SHARP (GBR)
Good to have you back, buddy. Phil Sharp relaunched himself on the singlehanded ocean racing scene in May when he dragged his ailing Class40 across the finish line in 3rd place in the Transat – having led most of the way. Ten years after dominating the Class40 in the 2006 Route du Rhum Sharp is now getting ready to begin a 2020 Vendée Globe campaign, having at long last secured the backing he needs to demonstrate some prodigious talent
