Seahorse Sailor of the Month

FEBRUARY'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month LUCA RIZZOTTI (ITA)
The crazy hardworking founder of Foiling Week gives up thousands of hours of time running new events, encouraging women’s and youth high-performance sailing, coaching champions; and just occasionally the Persico Sales Manager (no small day job that) manages to steal some airtime of his own in Garda where foiling life begins. Foiling Week was just awarded World Sailing Special Event status, to put it on a par with the America’s Cup. Quite right too

Sailor of the Month STUART BITHELL (GBR)
The GBR 49er sailed by Bithell and helm Dylan Fletcher snatched 2020 gold out from under the noses of huge pre-event favourites Burling and Tuke by successfully pulling off a most unlikely gybe in the final inches of the last race, filling a spinnaker that should never have filled in time let alone started to pull. A passionate supporter of national as well as Olympic-level dinghy sailing, 470 silver at London 2012 and gold in Japan. A nice way to bookend an outstanding career
