Steph Bridge nominated ISAF Rolex Sailor Of The Year

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

ISAF received nominations for the 2014 Awards from across the world for sailors representing all aspects of the sport. The nominees are put forward based on achievements made during the qualifying period from 1 September 2013 to 21 September 2014.

Only one nominee wins in both the male and female categories. The names vying for the coveted and prestigious 2014 ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Award are:

ISAF-Content-World-SailorMale
Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS)
Peter Burling and Blair Tuke (NZL)
Bill Hardesty (USA)
Giles Scott (GBR)
James Spithill (AUS)

Female
Steph Bridge (GBR)
Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA)
Charline Picon (FRA)

At the 2014 Formula Kite Racing Worlds in Burc Beach, Turkey, Steph Bridge headed out onto the water with intent and focus as she aimed to regain her world title. The Briton was a force to be reckoned with from the word go, blasting her way around the rack track to take the opening bullet, one of six from the week. Bridge took the lead on the opening day and did not relinquish the position as she sealed her fourth world title.

This is Steph's fifth world title in Kite Course Racing (now Formula Kite), after becoming world champion in 2011 (Germany) and 2009 (USA), and winning the 2007 and 2008 world tour.
