Seahorse Sailor of the Month

OCTOBER'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month KATIE MCCABE (GBR)
It’s only fair… Timothy Long was duly acknowledged here for becoming the youngest person to sail around the British Isles – aged 15. Katie McCabe recently completed her own solo circumnavigation aged 14. What is so great about these achievements is the energy with which they move offshore sailing onto the news pages. Remember too the friends and family who have worked so hard to support every one of these attempts. ‘Stewie Griffin, please come to the dock…’

Sailor of the Month MARTINE GRAEL/KAHENA KUNZE (BRA)
Following her previous success at Rio 2016 Martine chilled out for a while by competing in the Volvo Ocean Race on AkzoNobel –which she was aboard when the Dutch entry broke the 24-hour record set by her father Torben 10 years before. Now there is talk in Brazil of Martine hooking up with Dad and her now double gold medal 49er FX crew in the 2022 Ocean Race. There are plenty more fast Graels to make up the numbers if needed
