AUGUST'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month HORACE!!! (CHN)
Taking it for the team. Much as we’d like to put the whole lot of them up here we had to pick one member of Dongfeng who we feel sums up everything that is special about the winners of the 2017-18 Volvo Race and Chen ‘Horace’ Jinhao feels like a good fit.
