OCTOBER'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month SAM DAVIES (FRA/UK)
Faster and faster gets the best French prospect for a podium finish by a woman skipper in the Vendée Globe. We say French only slightly tongue-in-cheek since Sam has immersed herself in every possible aspect of life in France in general and Brittany in particular. ‘Sam is a very very very good sailor woman’ – says her neighbour Geraldine Gandillon… and who are we to argue? From children’s charities to environment to education today Sam Davies is everywhere

Sailor of the Month JUAN HECTOR DOMATO (ARG)
A slightly belated happy 80th birthday to this innovative Argentinean yacht designer and successful race skipper. Domato is a legendary figure among his country’s sailors and may also be recalled by some of our more mature subscribers… Four Admiral’s Cups, four Bermuda Races, Commodores’ Cup winner in 1992, Transat winner, 3 Sardinia Cups, 6 Buenos Aires to Rios and class winner in the rough 1979 Fastnet on his Admiral’s Cupper Red Rock IV
