Team of the year / Sailor of the year

Posted on 31 December 2005 by Valencia Sailing

As it is customary in all sports, we have decided that our last article for the year would serve to name the America’s Cup Team of the year as well as Sailor of the year. Being late to implement a voting system so that the audience and all America’s Cup fans could cast their vote for their favorite team and sailor, this ranking solely represents our personal opinion and our choice, should we have to vote.

The choice of the team was based entirely on their performance during the Louis Vuitton Acts that took place in 2005 while our choice of sailor took also into consideration his performance in all sailing races he took part in, whether they were during a Louis Vuitton Act or not.

A new voting system will be put in place shortly, so that in 2006 all America’s Cup fans will be able to cast their vote.

TEAM OF THE YEAR: ALINGHI

SAILOR OF THE YEAR: JAMES SPITHILL

In the Laser Radial fleet, 3 sailors are in the top places with equal points so tomorrow presents itself as a very interesting day. First place is for Italian sailor Fabiola Magnaghi, followed by German competitors Martje Uecker (Rudolph) and Janika Puls (Marinepool) second and third respectively.

Danish sailor Anders Nyholm (Hempel Els) is leader in the Laser class followed by Italian competitor Giacomo Bottoli and third place is for another Italian sailor, Michele Regolo (Solvin).

The weather forecast did not announce very favourable conditions for today in Palamós. That is why the Organising Committee, following the forecast of the Canal Méteo team, decided to put forward the time of the warning signal of the first race of the day to take advantage of the morning wind. All classes were able to sail at least one race. The forecast was correct and around midday the wind began to drop.
