SAIL1DESIGN “LONE WOLF” AWARD: YOUTH SAILOR OF THE YEAR, presented by KO SAILING
Dedication. Perseverance. Independence. These are just some of the attributes of the go-it-alone sailor, the lone wolf who is able to train, plan, and compete by her or himself, and do it successfully. This award, presented by KO Sailing, goes to the North American youth sailor who best personifies the qualities necessary to be a successful athlete in the single-handed sailing world. If you think you know a deserving candidate for this award, tell us why in a 200 word minimum letter, to firstname.lastname@example.org. This award is presented annually, in January, after the preceding year’s full sailing season.
Says Mark McNamara, president of KO Sailing, “KO sailing is a major supporter for competitive sailors between the ages of 8 and 18, helping them to compete at the highest level. To us, the Lone Wolf Youth Sailor of the Year Award is a perfect way to recognize those individuals for their success and achievements in their respective elements. There is a great synergy between what KO Sailing is doing on the ground, and at events, in support of what these recipients have achieved. This program is just a great way for the country to recognize those sailors as they grow. Sail 1 Design, with their expertise and as the information resource for all things one design, is the only team to work with.”
