Seahorse Sailor of the month: Annabel Vose & Megan Brickwood
MUSTO sponsors a ‘sailor of the month’ competition column in Seahorse magazine, and we thought we’d share the results with you. Every month we give away an Evolution Soft Shell Jacket incorporating style, performance and fleece lined GORE-TEX® fabric technology to the lucky winners.
This month’s winner is ANNABEL VOSE & MEGAN BRICKWOOD (GBR):
‘It was terrific to see so many readers get behind Thailand’s first Optimist world champion – but the wall of support for the young English sailors won through. ‘I’ve known Megan since she was just an egg and she was already sailing then!’ – Mandy Suggitt; ‘Fantastic result, hanging in after losing a mast’ – Steve Parmiter; ‘Splendid effort, true grit!!!’ – Phil Archer; ‘Kept pushing until their (French) rival blew it all in the final race… perfect!’ – Steve Carter.
NATHAN OUTTERIDGE (AUS)
It’s been on the cards for a while but even so Outteridge’s absolute dominance of the foiler Moths, first at the Australian nationals where he won at will and then at the 2011 worlds, needs to be recognised. For a man focusing on a 49er gold medal in Weymouth it was a scary demonstration of talent to burn. Nice work too assembling the Moth Squad and making some big technical gains in what is your ‘second-choice’ class…
STEPHEN PARK (GBR)
Twelve medals (plus two in the Paralympic classes), three gold, five silver and four bronze… The haul by Team GBR at the Miami OCR. This British team manager has many good days, plenty at the Olympics themselves, but sometimes this can also make it all look too easy. The reality is that the groundwork and planning, from first the funding right through to the execution by the sailors out on the water, is colossal.
