APRIL'S WINNER
GEORGE DAVID (USA)
‘What an amazing competitor in our sport. From the Admiral’s Cup on Idler decades ago to breaking records on Rambler last month. An example to us all’ – Peter Morton; ‘The harder it blows the happier he is’ – Joca Signorini; ‘I could not think of a better person to win this… all his programmes are slick but he also manages to keep it all balanced… that’s rare at this level’ – Nathan Hislop; ‘He very nearly drowns in the Irish Sea in 2011 and then he’s straight back and right into it again, gutsy guy – Jo Newton.

MAY'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month STEVE BENJAMIN (USA)
Long overdue… and not just because he’s recently given young Trevor Davis (son of) a well-deserved break by signing him up to his Etchells programme… nice touch, though. While racking up a seemingly non-stop stream of major trophies, going all the way back to before his 470 Olympic silver medal at LA in 1984, Benj has been giving to the sport in every area from ocean racing administration to junior programmes to grand prix regattas
Sailor of the month SUSIE GOODALL (GBR)
This year’s (and next’s!) Golden Globe Race is going to be a huge event for sailing even if sailing doesn’t know it yet and Goodall is the only female entrant after several others fell by the wayside during a rigorous qualifying and preparation period. There can be little direct affinity with the original event that took place more than 20 years before she was born but Susie rates among the best-prepared for this one. And backed by DHL too…
