2013 Cat Sailor of the Year Nominees

Image Thom Touw - Nacra 17 Worlds. Besson-Riou. Last year we had Olivier Backes & Mathiew Vandame , Mischa Heemskerk & Carolijn Brouwer
Backes & Matthiew had more votes on achieving the Triple Crown of the F18: Europeans, Eurocat & Worlds at LA.
For this year we have French favorites again with  Billy Besson (F18 with jeremy Lagarrigue & Nacra 17 Worlds with Marie Riou), Franck Cammas (C-Class, Volvo Ocean Race, Olympic campaign) , James Spithill & Dean Barker on their class onboard the foiling AC72s

I think also one of the Nacra 17 girls must be on the list and Henri Demesmaeker, the 12 yrs old F16 World Champ. Any other sailor with local or unknown achievement, racing or not can be voted too , just send your story to catsailingnews gmail com and we'll make the Poll with detailed reference for each sailor, for people to vote at the end of November.
