Seahorse sailor of the month: Matt Cassidy
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.
March’s winner is MATT CASSIDY (USA):
‘To win the MedCup, RC44s, Cong Cup, TP52 Worlds and Match Race Worlds in one year… It’s about time, Matt!’ – Ian Williams; ‘Talented and driven since he was a little boy…’ – Abbie Plunkett; ‘When the chips are down, call for Matt!’ – Ray Wulf; ‘An all-round class act’ – Duthie Lidgard; ‘No one compares to this boy’ – Sarah Callahan; ‘The ultimate unsung hero and the best can-do attitude out there’ – Dobbs Davis (sic); ‘Yeeeehah, Matty!’ – Bobby Richards.

Get voting, Sam… The winners of Leg 2 of the Global Ocean Race sailed into Wellington with a secret. Only once close family had been informed was it confirmed that Sam Goodchild had fallen overboard from the pair’s Class 40 approaching New Zealand in very rough conditions and had only been saved after a lengthy demonstration of quite exemplary seamanship on the part of his calm Kiwi co-skipper.
ADIL KHALID (UAE)
The Volvo Ocean Race story of Abu Dhabi took a dramatic turn for the better when, after a poor result on the way into home waters, the local favourites stormed their In-Port Race… and then also stormed the first stage of Leg 3. We are very happy to give much of the credit for the turnaround to local crewman Khalid, the 23-year old being a former Olympic Laser sailor as well as now a key member of a top international ocean-racing crew.
