Seahorse sailor of the month: Hap Fauth
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.
May’s winner is HAP FAUTH (USA):
‘A sailing gent’ – Sean Clarkson; ‘Beetle cat or maxi, he will find away to stay in front of you!’ – Ted Matthews; ‘Exactly the sort of positive role model we need’ – Jay Hansen; ‘A great ambassador’– Bill Gladstone; ‘We need more gents like Hap’ – Jack Orr; ‘Got to vote for the boss!’ – Danny Weeks; ‘He exemplifies what this prize is about’ – Melissa Seamans; ‘Grounded and admirable’ – Brian Kinsella; ‘Hap is great for sailing… and architecture!’ Rehn Hassell.
DARREN ‘TWIRLER’ JONES (AUS)
Another unsung hero with multiple world titles in the Farr 30, Farr 40 and Swan 45 classes, to name but three. Plenty of other major titles in the Etchells and Melges 32 classes and a handy set of results on the left coast in the sleds. Plus, and maybe more important, this Hobart native’s got a pretty scary fanclub who have been leaning on us for a while… Sailmaker, trimmer and all-round top bloke. Good enough…
MORGAN LARSON (USA)
The Oman Air Extreme Sailing team made a nice call taking on the America’s Cup veteran for 2012. Larson arrived in Muscat to make his debut as a X-40 skipper and promptly wiped the floor with his experienced rivals to dominate the opening regatta. Nice result too for Muscat, as the runner-up spot was taken by The Wave Muscat, skippered by Leigh McMillan… who introduced Morgan Larson to the series last year.
