Christmas 2015

LARRY HUNTINGDON (USA)

 Nomination
Supporters of sailing don’t come much more enthusiastic than this great American Corinthian. Now aged 80, the 2015 Transatlantic marked the former New York YC Commodore’s seventh such race, finishing this year as winner of Class 3 on his trusty Ker-designed 50-footer Snow Lion. As usual, having raced to Europe Huntington made the most of his ‘trip’ by competing in the Rolex Fastnet and other major events
 Why they won
‘No better shipmate exists’ – Robert More II; ‘The complete sailor, always upbeat and tough as nails’ – Tom Mclaughlin; ‘Gentleman, friend and role model’ – Morgan Bennett; ‘What a fantastic Corinthian sailor’ – Tish Walcott; ‘As great a seaman as they come’ – Lewis Simons; ‘I can’t think of a kinder, more joyful or more deserving candidate’ – Patrick Gavin-Brynes; ‘So many races, so many miles... you deserve this one’ – Ed Rzeszowski; ‘It’s hard to overestimate Larry’s contribution to this sport’ – Ed Cesare.
