Seahorse Sailor of the Month

SEPTEMBER'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month MERRITT SELLERS (USA)
St Francis Yacht Club rocks. Especially their youngsters, including Merritt Sellers who won the two-handed division in the Bayview-Mack Race sailing with her dad Scot. ‘We got ’em at night,’ said dad. ‘We went from 2nm back to 2nm in front.’ What had to be squeezed out of the pair was that Merritt was on the helm most of the race and all of the night. ‘I’m at a point as a sailor where I’m able to do this,’ said the 14-year-old. ‘Everything was pretty mellow… it feels pretty cool’

Sailor of the Month IOANNIS MARAGKOUDAKIS (GRE)
The creator of the Aegean 600 has a lot to be proud of, launching a new 600-miler last year. The race was an instant hit and he quickly switched plans from a biennial event to a race every year. Now for 2023 a record entry of grand prix designs is already lining up as the word spreads. Line-honours winner Henri de Bokay read about last year’s race in Seahorse… then headed out and bought his friend Tilmar Hansen’s Outsider. Very smart
