Seahorse Sailor of the Month: Dee Smith
September’s winner is DEE SMITH (USA):
‘This is hard. I lost my dad to cancer last year, so sort of know what Dee is going through; I have a lot of respect for what he is doing’ – Carolijn Brouwer backs her rival; ‘Anyone can sail, to take on a cause like this shows a lot more’ – Richard Smith; ‘Dee, good luck and thank you’ – Jon Rolien; ‘Give the guy a break!’ – Chris Savage; ‘Thanks, buddy’ – Scott Nixon; ‘Great choice’ – Liz Horkan; ‘If he can get a donation from me he deserves this accolade!’ – Bob Fisher.
TONY LANGLEY (GBR)
He won in Sardinia in June and he took another race off the big TP52 teams in Palma at the Royal Cup. The success of owner-drivers like Tony Langley is key to the future prosperity of the new TP52 SuperSeries, and so far he’s doing them a pretty good job! Timely confirmation too of the effectiveness of the rating work being done by the organisers of this series in matching new and old, TP52 and IRC52 alike.
DAMIAN FOXALL (IRL)
The committed Irish long-distance racer was one of the very first to be hired when Franck Cammas decided to challenge the Volvo Ocean Race status quo, initially with a two-race programme which ultimately would prove unnecessary. Foxall joined Cammas on the back of winning the Barcelona World Race with Jean-Pierre Dick and scoring well in other big events including a mighty solo performance in the Figaro Race.
