Andrew Pindar (GBR)

 Nomination
Pindar's enthusiastic support for endeavour sets a fine example. The backer of ocean racers such as Emma Richards (above) and Mike Sanderson, he now also supports some of the UK's best young sailors. Always acting in the spirit of the sea, during the Around Alone Pindar was quick to lend support (and a mast) to rivals. His latest gesture, sending his hospitality trawler to help the rescue of J-P Dick's Virbac, was typical of his far-sighted and generous attitude
 Why they won
60:40 ahead of America's Cup star Peter Gilmour proves sailors do appreciate the sport's 'behind-the-scenes' faces. 'A man to go to sea with; his support of his own team and his rivals is exemplary' - Dean Hubbard; 'A great role model and motivator ofjunior sailors' - Hugo &Joe Sayes; There is no bigger team player in sailing' - Jaquie Kanda!.
