Yachtsman of the Year Award nominations

It's time to nominate candidates for this year's Yachting Journalists' Association Yachtsman of the Year Award. British candidates are invited from all aspects of the sport including dinghy sailing, powerboating, offshore yacht racing and adventure.

The Yachtsman of the Year Award is presented every year and voted on by the Yachting Journalists' Association from the nominations put forward both by their members and the public. The winners reflect some of the most skilled and courageous sailors of the last two generations, including offshore sailors such Chay Blyth, Robin Knox-Johnston, Eric Tabarly; windsufing champion Penny Way; and the incredibly successful British Olympic sailing team in 2000.

In recent years, the Yachtsman of the Year Award has gone to Pete Goss, Ellen MacArthur and Ben Ainslie.

If you can think of anyone who has done anything that might merit a bit of public appreciation, then e-mail names together with short paragraph about their 2002 achievments to: ppl@mistral.co.uk

Would be nice to see some intrepid ribsters in the frame this year . . .

John

You are too kind chaps!

I think I know which Ribber should be up there for a nomination.

I'm going to nominate this particular person and I think we should all do the same.

Keith (get into the 'spirit' of the award) Hart

I WAS going to vote for Keith, but then I decided that his main contribution was to the bacon industry, so maybe he should get the Bacon Buyer of the Year Award!

Consider yourself nominated Mr Priddy...

Mr Priddy is the only nominee as far as I'm concerned. We should all nominate him and his crew NOW!
