Seahorse Sailor of the Month

JANUARY'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month DOUG DEVOS (USA)
Another season and (yet) another TP52 Super Series title for Quantum Racing’s owner and also number one helmsman. For 2023 there will be an opening-up of the Quantum TP52 Super Series programme in order to bring onboard and then get up to speed a new generation of youth and women’s sailing talent to keep the American Magic America’s Cup machine fed – as well as to prepare others to go on and join other elite teams in different areas of the sport

Sailor of the Month PAULINE COURTOIS (FRA)
Racing this year at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron Pauline Courtois’s Match in Pink team successfully defended their 2021 Women’s Match Racing world title ahead of runner-up, local favourite New Zealand champion Celia Willison. The 30-year-old sports teacher from Brest started sailing at seven, racing at nine and match racing at 17. She joined the world tour as a skipper in 2014 when she finished 8th… Does anyone know the French word for perseverance?
