2015 CHRISTMAS

LARRY HUNTINGDON (USA)

Nomination
Supporters of sailing don’t come much more enthusiastic than this great American Corinthian. Now aged 80, the 2015 Transatlantic marked the former New York YC Commodore’s seventh such race, finishing this year as winner of Class 3 on his trusty Ker-designed 50-footer Snow Lion. As usual, having raced to Europe Huntington made the most of his ‘trip’ by competing in the Rolex Fastnet and other major events
