Seahorse Sailor of the Month

‘A magnificent start…’ – Bruno Dubois; ‘Great job’ – Sam Goodchild; ‘See you in Abu Dhabi!’ – Iker Martínez; ‘Skipper and mentor… one in the eye for the naysayers’ – Alistair Skinner; ‘Tough choice for a Frenchman!’ – Christian Granger; ‘For sure Loïck Peyron is an alien… but Charles’s task is so demanding that nobody really expected to see Dongfeng with the leaders so early in the race’ – François Seguin; ‘Fantastic guy… grounded and a living example of the new-generation VOR racer’ – Eero Lehtinen.
No sooner had he stepped ashore in Guadeloupe having secured the final podium spot in the Rhum Class than Sir Robin – still just a young 75 – was confirming that he would be back in four years for the 2018 Route du Rhum, for which he intends to build a new trimaran… rather smaller and easier to manage than his current ageing and relatively heavy Imoca 60 Grey Power. We need more like him...
Sailor of the month ALEX PELLA (ESP)
Pella’s dominance of the Class40 division in the Route du Rhum was a performance that has been threatening for some time… Pella is the outstanding Spanish shorthander of the current generation and for the 2014 Rhum he was paired up with designer Marcelo Botín’s clearly exceptional latest Class40 Tales 2. After a faltering start with rudder, sail and electronic issues, Pella soon romped to the front – and thereafter was never really challenged
