2008 MAY

Torvar Mirsky (AUS)

Nomination
Young New Zealand match-racer Adam Minoprio is certainly good, as we’ve seen from his performances against the ‘seeded’ players at the Auckland Cup. However, Australia has a new rising star of its own, and in the style of his countryman Peter Gilmour, Torvar Mirsky came back from a poor first day to win the Warren Jones Youth Regatta for the second time, pushing Minoprio back into the runner-up slot
Why they won
‘I have watched Torvar sail in every one of the six Warren Jones Match Race Regattas we have held here, starting as a 16-year-old. He has certainly matured into a cunning, no-holds-barred skipper, who is now a force to be reckoned with at any level of match racing – even at the tender age of 21 years old’ – Skip Lissiman.
