Seahorse sailor of the month: Conrad Colman

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.

April’s winner is CONRAD COLMAN (NZL):

‘Mad as a bag of ferrets but a great guy and a top sailor’ – Hamish Macdonald; ‘He’s seaworthy enough to win this thing!’ – Kathryn Walker; ‘Saving a life and winning the race’ – Pascaline Hirsch; ‘Good deeds deserve grand recognition’ – Helen Littlewood; ‘The quickness of mind plus courage to make vital decisions’ – Kristin Arthur; ‘Extraordinary seamanship’ – Jaime Darder; ‘Clear and calm under maximum stress… a magnificent example’ – Clare Smillie.



He was there at the chart table when Tokio led out the Solent after calling the perfect sailing angle at the start of his first Whitbread in 1993 and he was ‘still’ there when Telefónica took her third consecutive leg win in the current Volvo Ocean Race in China. In between he has fitted in five more circumnavigations, both crewed and shorthanded, usually with a decent result, as well as two America’s Cups!


It’s easy to forget that sailing – in spite of all the noise around media and shore-based fans –continues to be one of the world’s great participation sports. And at its heart are tens of thousands of passionate enthusiasts… like Hap Fauth. Impatient for the launch of his latest Bella Mente, Fauth chartered a TP52 for Key West and got stuck in, steering with a tiller for the first time in years. And he did good. Here’s one for the enthusiasts who are this sport.
