Francis Joyon (FRA)

 Nomination
Whether you vote out of sympathy or out of admiration, we expect a huge turnout for this magnificent French multihull sailor. To lose your boat within just 24 hours of comprehensively annihilating the singlehanded Atlantic sailing record is cruel misfortune, but at least Joyon’s disastrous oversleep took place after the record had been set…
 Why they won
Peter Johnstone says it all: ‘Joyon is among the greatest of all time.’ ‘Built how Arnie would like to be, yet gentle and humble and with determination that is on a different tier’ – Rich Wilson; ‘Little money, great records, this is why I vote for Francis’ – Alessandro Monti. Seahorse Sailor of the Month comes to you with Dubarry, Henri Lloyd and Harken McLube. Please call Seahorse for your prizes
