JUNE'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month TAYLOR CANFIELD (ISV)
Before this year only three sailors had won four Congressional Cups in Long Beach (and the blinding crimson blazer that accompanies it) – Rod Davis, Peter Holmberg and Gavin Brady… and they went on to do OK. Now there’s a fourth name on the list after Canfield saw off Terry Hutchinson’s American Magic Cup squad 3-1 in the final of this year’s event. Any America’s Cup teams looking to boost the match race talent… we’ll put you in touch
Sailor of the month PAUL GOODISON (GBR)
Not being in the Artemis race crew last year must have lit some kind of a fire under the 2008 Laser gold medallist, who has won his third straight Moth world title (Moth, foiling monohull, AC75, just saying – ed). Runner-up this year was Luna Rossa tactician Francesco Bruni while last year on Lake Garda Goody topped what felt like half the Cup sailors from Bermuda. In that one it went Goodison, Burling, Jensen and Slingsby. Enough for you?
