Seahorse Sailor of the Month

SEPTEMBER'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month STEVE FERGUSON (NZL)
Recently a grinder for Team New Zealand at AC36, the Ferguson lineage is solid too, father Ian being a four-time Olympic gold medal-winning canoeist. Steve himself swam for New Zealand at the 2000 Olympic Games before also switching to canoeing to represent his country in the Games of 2004, 2008 and finally at London 2012. The boys at Team NZ say that he picked up sailing pretty well too… Did we forget to mention that in 2004 Steve was the World Lifesaving Champion?

Sailor of the Month ERIC DOYLE (USA)
Sailing with Tom Olsen, Doyle won the Star Worlds back in 1999 and he has clearly not lost the knack, winning this year’s midwinters in Miami with a scoreline of 2,1,1,1,1,1,1,8 racing now with Payson Infelise. To put some context to this achievement, the next places were filled by Augie Diaz, Paul Cayard and John McCausland, all of them also previous Star World Champions. Doyle’s final tally of 8pt put him 17pt ahead of 2nd-place Miami specialist Diaz
