JANUARY'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month THOMAS COVILLE (FRA)
One of three or four (French) men who have dominated ocean racing this year, Coville and his trusty lieutenant Jean-Luc Nélias saw off the challenge of the clearly faster but still fragile Gitana 17 to win the Transat Jacques Vabre in a new record time. But Coville knows the clock is ticking on his current boat and is increasingly impatient to find a buyer so that his sponsor Sodebo can start on a new Ultim in time for the big race in 2019
Sailor of the month FRANCOIS GABART (FRA)
What is there left to say about someone who has won every single major ocean race that he has entered to date, including the previous TJV, the Route du Rhum and the 2012 Vendée Globe. On his current solo round-the-world record attempt Gabart passed the Cape of Good Hope on his 100ft Ultim Macifmore than one hour more quickly than the 140ft Banque Pop V managed with 14 crew onboard during her successful Jules Verne run
