Tony Langley (GBR)

Nomination
He won in Sardinia in June and he took another race off the big TP52 teams in Palma at the Royal Cup. The success of owner-drivers like Tony Langley is key to the future prosperity of the new TP52 SuperSeries, and so far he’s doing them a pretty good job! Timely confirmation too of the effectiveness of the rating work being done by the organisers of this series in matching new and old, TP52 and IRC52 alike
Why they won
‘Race winner in the 52s and also won the Round the Island, nice!’ – Tom Wilson; ‘As good a skipper ashore as afloat’ – Mike Barron; ‘Has got to be so good by sheer hard work, a great example to owner-drivers’ – Rudy Jurg; ‘Lends his boats out, helps charities, a thoroughly top bloke’ – Jock Stewart; ‘Doing well in a pretty hot fleet!’ – John Goodwin; ‘Serious tenacity’ – Craig Nutter; ‘Tony is a big reason why the SuperSeries is doing so well’ – Tom Burnham.
