Sean Langman (AUS)

 Nomination
This is definitely the month for recognizing passion for the sheer spirit of going racing in a sailboat... Langman has followed his successful career in 18-foot skiffs with a series of extremely individual ocean racing campaigns, ranging from the slowest Sydney-Hobart entry to the new Hobart course record holder, his Orma 60 trimaran Team Australia. In addition he remains a major player in the New South Wales sailing industry
