Competition Winners Announced.

To celebrate 12 months of yacht racing business news, comment and debate on we ran a competition during August. Up for grabs was a free delegate pass to the World Yacht Racing Forum to be held in Monaco in December. All you had to do to win the prize was correctly identify Peter Gilmour as this year’s Chairman of the event.

We are happy to announce that the prize was won by Giles Pearman of KPMS. We contacted Giles to inform him of his win and he said:

“What a nice surprise. The World Yacht Racing Forum is excellent opportunity to meet and hear from some of the prime movers in the sport of sailing. The first edition proved it is a sound concept from which those involved in the competitive side of the sport may learn and benefit. Prior commitments prevented me attending last year, and this year I have no excuses!”

Tom Cagnina and Helena Gandara also won a copy of the DARK BLUE BOOK – the Who’s Who of Yacht Racing.
