Seahorse Sailor of the Month

MAY'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month CHRIS SHERLOCK (GBR)
While Sherlock will for ever be associated with the Farr 100 Leopard 3 his contribution to sailing and sailors extends far wider than that. However, Leopard’s overall victory in the 2024 RORC Caribbean 600 was a nice excuse to put Sherlock forward with a nomination that is probably long overdue. The latest ‘update’ of Leopardwhich he managed last year was an epic, yet this almost 20-year-old Maxi is going faster than it ever has – so it clearly worked. And straight out of the box

Sailor of the Month COLE BRAUER (USA)
And bang… we seem to have a new international superstar. Although the Global Solo Challenge is ‘just’ one of the many Corinthian round the world events popping up now on a regular basis, and even though the GSC only rose to wider public consciousness in its final few weeks, in just that brief window, in terms of social media US skipper Brauer quickly eclipsed high-profile French ‘rival’ Clarisse Crémer… Too late for this Vendée Globe, but the next one should be a shoe-in
