Fred Eaton & Magnus Clarke (CAN)

 Nomination
The Little America’s Cup has long been a favourite of Seahorse and its readers, and now the competition may finally come alive once again after these two extremely smart Canadian multihull sailors and speed-technicians finally managed to end the reign of Steve Clarke and his incredibly and enduringly successful Cogito. And so now Steve has the excuse he wanted to build a new one… thank you, guys!
 Why they won
Wow, that was fairly tight… as we went to press the new Canadian holders of the Little America’s Cup (for it is that – ed) had just edged out this year’s champion TP52 helmsman Torbjørn Törnqvist by 54% to 46% – the voting having hovered between 49:51% and 51:49% for over a week. Artemis in 2008, Torbjørn!
