FEBRUARY'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month JOERG RIECHERS (GER)
The popular German slipped into 2nd place in the Mini Transat when it mattered, just a day out from the finish. No one was going to catch winner Ian Lipinski; ‘best of the rest’ was all that was realistically on offer, but after years of under-funded Class40 and Imoca campaigns Riekers had at last landed in a fleet where he can demonstrate his talent. With a little good fortune maybe he can even leverage this result into something bigger (again)
Sailor of the month JUDY PETZ (BVI)
One of the many regatta managers playing a big part in the Caribbean recovery, BVI resident Petz has barely stood still since Hurricane Irma struck, working with communities and encouraging regattas fighting to ensure those sailors’ dollars reach devastated families this winter… at the same time continuing her longstanding efforts with Sailors for the Sea to try to help this ravaged area to remain as clean as possible in the most challenging circumstances
