Seahorse Sailor of the Month

JUNE'S NOMINEES
Sailor of the Month SAM GOODCHILD (GBR)
Another one from over here doing bloody well over there. Goodchild has been quietly working his way up the oceanic racing ladder, mainly based in France since graduating from the now defunct Artemis Sailing Academy a little under 10 years ago. Following the time-honoured path of hard graft ashore, getting onto the crew for hospitality days, joining the race crew and finally skippering his own Ocean 50 tri. The recent 1000 Milles des Sables was his first major solo win

Sailor of the Month RYAN FINN (USA)
Great to be nominating a US sailor again for a major oceanic achievement… it’s been too long. Finn recently completed what designer and racer Mervyn Owen described well as ‘one of the greatest feats of seamanship ever completed by an American sailor’. That achievement… battling his way the wrong way round Cape Horn to sail solo from New York City to San Francisco onboard a far from confidence-inspiring 36ft proa. The non-stop voyage took him 93 (long) days
