JUNE'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month MATIAS CAPIZZANO (ARG)
One the greatest of the many great photographers who we are privileged to work with at Seahorse, what is less well known is the enormous amount that Matias does to support sailing in South America, youth sailing especially, and most of all the Optimist class, of which his native country produces more than its fair share of champions… along with all the Optimist coaches who are flown around the world non-stop by grateful parents. Do visit his online gallery. It’s a nice ‘reminder’

Sailor of the Month ABBY EHLER (AUS)
Three Volvo races under her belt – the most recent with Bouwe Bekking on Brunel – and, more significant in the wider scheme, helping to create and run the Magenta Project which continues to do great things all around the world for women’s sailing. Current Magenta activities include an international mentoring programme to help around 40 promising women sailors take the next step, as well as a very timely campaign to help to revitalise grass roots club racing.
