Sir Keith Mills ()

 Nomination
Considering the vast expenditure of both effort and money that he has put into sailing – particularly since the end of the 2007 America’s Cup – it was very gratifying, first to see Mills’s longtime protégé Alex Thomson make the Vendée Globe podium and then for the man himself to top IRC 1 at the helm of his own TP52 during the RORC Easter Challenge in Cowes. Long may the good fortune continue
 Why they won
‘Keith Mills is a legend for what he has done to support British yachting… and he is a thoroughly nice chap as well!’ – Sophie Luther; ‘Loves his sailing and does a great deal to support others in the sport’ – Rob Greenhalgh; ‘A tough choice, please make it easier next month!’ – Bruce Masters; ‘It’s great to see Keith himself out on the water again as well as those he supports’ – Ian Moore; ‘Sailing needs more people like Keith Mills’ – Tim Hedges; ‘A good choice, one of the quiet men behind British sailing’ – Mike Coyne.
