Seahorse Sailor of the month: Rob Weiland
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.
October’s winner is ROB WEILAND (NED):
‘‘Rob has kept grand prix racing alive with his amazing ability to unite owners who think they have very different objectives… And he was instrumental in assembling the Dutch team that won the “last” Admiral’s Cup in 1999’ – Simon Keizer; ‘Rob has been a constant support to me throughout my TP52 sailing’ – John Cook; ‘A gentleman who tells it like it is’ – Jim Bell. ‘Me, naah. I am voting for Udo Schütz, of course… I am a mere servant’ – Rob Weiland.
DAVID RAISON (FRA)
‘It is not impossible that in five years’ time we will look back on August 2011 as the month in which someone – in this case Raison – was finally successful in applying the scow principle of yacht design to an offshore yacht. Raison has been persevering with his Mini 6.50 TeamWork for over 12 months now, in which time it has gone from fragile also-ran to one of the fastest designs in a very sophisticated class.
CAMERON APPLETON (NZL)
Since he left Artemis during the thinning-out process that followed the Cup’s switch to multihulls, Appleton has been fully engaged on the pro-sailing circuit, both at the helm and also whispering in the ear of his many happy clients… Happy, because during the course of the 2011 summer this popular Kiwi has won nearly every one of his last 10 major regattas. And putting those smiles on faces is good for business!
