Louise Morton (GBR)

 Nomination
Another quarter ton title for Cowes’ fastest lady skipper. The 2013 Quarter Ton Cup – which Louise Morton dominated in a strong fleet – is just the latest of numerous plaudits including three British Ladies’ Keelboat championships, Cowes Week titles and class wins at the Vice Admiral’s Cup. Does great things for women sailors, too, with only the occasional fella getting a look-in among Morton’s regular crew
 Why they won
‘As an “occasional fella” in Louise’s crew I can honestly say that to sail with Louise and the girls is a huge pleasure; and they race harder than most boats on the Solent’ – Sam Richmond; ‘Always winning, always having more fun’ – James Roche; ‘As an infrequent crew member, I’ve never had more fun’ – Nicky Bethwaite; ‘Not just a fast sailor, Louise also does amazing things keeping the Quarter Ton class motoring along’ – Mark Mills; ‘About bloody time’ – Led Pritchard; ‘Much nicer than her hubby’ – Mark Tomson.
