The August 2013 sailor of the month competition in Seahorse magazine is… ANDREW MILLS (GBR).  A MUSTO Evolution Jacket is on its way to you.

A big vote this month. ‘My outside bet for Finn gold in Rio, plus he’s a fellow ginger and we need all the help we can get!’ – Dan Wilkinson; ‘A serious force in the toughest of the dinghy classes’ – Bob Fisher; ‘A giant of a man and none too shabby in a Finn’ – Craig Bowie; ‘And then he broke the Round the Island record with Sir Ben!’ – Amy Cada; ‘It was always a matter of when not if Andrew would start collecting the major titles’ – Nigel Milligan; ‘He works bl**dy hard and he supports others’ – Craig Whitby.
