Sailor of the Month GUILLAUME VERDIER (FRA)
Meteoric is the only way to describe the career trajectory of this brilliant – and still annoyingly youthful – designer! Verdier became involved with the Imoca 60 fleet ahead of the 2012/13 Vendée Globe; working alongside multihull experts VPLP the two teams identified a new Imoca concept and their designs dominated the race. For 2016 every new Imoca 60 was built to their designs. Now there is a new Ultim: Verdier’s biggest ‘solo’ project
Sailor of the month PETER CRAIG (USA)
It looks increasingly likely that there will be no Key West Race Week in 2018 although there is a good chance that the event will reappear in the not too distant future but in a different guise. However, a great deal of the success and entry demand this great event enjoyed in its heyday is down to Craig and his team at Premier Racing who ran faultless regattas year in year out. Craig himself is in constant demand running premier regattas around the world. No surprise
