Sailor of the Month DON MCINTYRE (AUS)
It started as a new race that he wanted to do himself, but very quickly the event that he created – the 2018 Golden Globe, for serious Corinthian singlehanded racers – took off so fast that this former BOC Challenge skipper will now stay ashore as organiser. With two years still to go, there are already 35 serious expressions of interest and 25 confirmed entries for a race that has fired huge energy into the non-professional solo racing scene
Sailor of the month MARK TURNER (GBR)
Another solo event that historically attracted both the very best sailors as well as a sometimes quirky fleet of yachts was the Transat. But, started in 1960, the race had quietly faded from public consciousness as higher-profile events like the Route du Rhum and Vendée Globe stepped in. New Volvo Race CEO Mark Turner – a bit of a traditionalist – was not prepared to see the event die and fought to save it. The 2016 edition was a pleasing vindication of his efforts
