Sailor of the Month PETER BECKER (USA)
Peter Becker lobbied us hard to nominate his Spanish friend Guillermo Altadill for this prize. Altadill did a wonderful job encouraging and coaching Becker’s young crew of Bermuda Race prize winners to a very significant success, but Becker founded the programme and has been working away with the youngsters for over three years now; and it was he who encouraged Altadill and other top professionals to get involved. So step forward, sir
Sailor of the month FAHAD AL HASNI (OMA)
A regular member of Sidney Gavignet’s crew on Musandam-Oman Sail, Al Hasni was one of three Omani sailors onboard when the blue MOD 70 set a new round Ireland record and took line honours in this year’s race of the same name. But Oman Sail had trailed her American rival Phaedo3 almost to the end, before pouncing in the fast-fading breeze with less than a mile left to go and scraping home just a few metres ahead
