Photos of the big night

We all know who the winners were and pictures say a thousand words so here are some photos from the night. The only story from last night that you cannot tell in photos is that the nominees were interviewed on a revolving stage. It does make sense because the room we were in was round so everyone got to see the nominees but it did look a bit strange watching some of the World’s best sailors slowly revolving round and round. And you could see some of them trying not to laugh.

The best quote of the night was perhaps from compare, Richard Simmonds, who pointed out what a special sport we have when you consider that all former World Sailors of the Year are still out their doing what they do best.
