FAHAD AL HASNI (OMA)

 Nomination
A regular member of Sidney Gavignet’s crew on Musandam-Oman Sail, Al Hasni was one of three Omani sailors onboard when the blue MOD 70 set a new round Ireland record and took line honours in this year’s race of the same name. But Oman Sail had trailed her American rival Phaedo3 almost to the end, before pouncing in the fast-fading breeze with less than a mile left to go and scraping home just a few metres ahead
 Why they won
‘Yes I like him, he is my brother!’ – Juma Alwahaibi; ‘We are so proud of you Fahad’ – Marwa Al Saadi; ‘It’s so good to see the wonderful Oman Sail programme bear fruit’ – Randall Richter; ‘It’s time for an Omani to shine!’ – Olivia Tapit; ‘I’ve seen him sail, very good’ – Mohammed Al Balushi; ‘He comes from a small fishing village, he is dedicated to this sport and he is a fine example of Omani friendship and hard work’ – Jonathan Earsley; ‘I think that Fahad was born only for this job’ – Mohammed Salim Alhedi.
