Seahorse Sailor of the month: Piet Vroon
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.
November’s winner is Piet Vroon (NED).
‘Even discounting those of you who multiple voted (naughty) it was a new record. ‘Sailing on Tonnerre, I am the happiest girl on earth’ – Anna-Maria Renkin; ‘It must be Piet’ – Stuart Quarrie; ‘And he still wants to race every single day’ – Hans Zuiderbaan; ‘Piet almost invented the sport’ – Henk Glazener; ‘Keep on sailing, keep on sailing!’ – Coen Horrevoets (brother); ‘Such a worthy nominee’ – Donal McClement; ‘And he visits his boat every day!’ – Ed Camerlink.
Eugeniy Neugodnikov (RUS)
‘It was a tough regatta; this boat always seems to finish fourth but now we are on the podium!’ There is no doubt that placing Russia’s foremost match racer on the helm of the TP52 Synergy had a positive effect at the 2010 worlds in Valencia. And now the Synergy syndicate are talking about an America’s Cup challenge; that could prove to be a particularly good week at the office for young Neugodnikov.
Adrian Stead (GBR)
Gently, gently, after a successful small boat career, Ado Stead has built a valuable profile as one of the world’s most in-demand grand prix tacticians. His result with and endorsement by the Quantum team in winning the 2010 TP52 world title was just the latest in a long list of top results taking in everything from Melges 24s, through Farr 40s, to Neville Crichton’s maxi Alfa Romeo. That accountancy career is on hold.
