Thanks for all your support in this matter but as it turned out we had as much chance of getting a nomination as flying to the moon.
The nominations are
Ellen Mcarther For the Route de Rhum
Peter Harisson for spending £22m on trying to win the Americas Cup.
Some Dinghy sailor who I am sure is very good
And Steve Curtis for winning the World Championship powere boat series for the fourth time. I voted for Steve as I thought it was about time he was reconised for his achivements, but I am dissapointed that we did not even get a mention.
