Seahorse Sailor of the Month

‘The first reach was nuts, with white sails we were doing crazy speeds. Our boat was just mental, it just goes and goes’ – Glenn Truswell (with Sam Pascoe above); ‘In the high-tech world of RC yachting Dave has been outstanding in designing, building and sailing. At the top of the game for 30 years he still ranks in the top 3 in the world – and his foil designs helped me to 8 world titles!’ – Graham Bantock; ‘I won the worlds with an A-Class designed by Dave as part of his 12-Metre research... Thanks!’ – Derek Priestley.
Sailor of the Month IAN WILLIAMS (GBR)
What more does the UK’s (and world’s) best match racer have to do to attract the attention of the elite sailing teams? By winning a 5th world title Williams becomes the most successful match racer of all time. Like Russell Coutts (engineer), Williams is also a qualified professional man (lawyer). Brains and discipline definitely help. Hopefully a further US$186,000 in prize money will ease any feelings of injustice...
Sailor of the month GANNON TROUTMAN (USA)
‘It felt good to get a result like that, I hope to be up there again...’ and no doubt you will. He opened with a 26th in the pro-riddled 54-strong J/70 fleet at Key West, but went on to count a 1,2,3 among a score good enough to see him finish 5th overall... one place behind Jud Smith. Gannon Troutman was 12 years old at his first major keelboat regatta. You sort of suspect we’ll be hearing a lot more of this young man
