Philippe Facque ()

 Nomination
Seahorse readers can't fail to have noticed the return to pre-eminence of the 60ft multihulls, and the growing media coverage of their grand-prix circuit. This hasn't happened by accident, rather because of the management efforts of the former co-skipper of the giant Royale cat, Philippe Facque, Since the tragic loss of his sailing partner, Loic Caradec, in the 1986 Route du Rhum, Facque's production company, Royale, has worked hard to give structure and continuity to the worid's most exciting racing boats. Sailing owes Facque adebt of gratitude for keeping the sport in the public eye.
