America’s Cup sailors take four of the five places on the nominees list for the ISAF Rolex Sailor of the Year Award (male).

Ben Ainslie (ORACLE TEAM USA, J.P. Morgan BAR), Nathan Outteridge (Artemis Racing),Loïck Peyron (Energy Team, Artemis Racing) and Tom Slingsby (ORACLE TEAM USA) are each nominated for the prestigious award.

Artemis Racing helmsman Nathan Outteridge turned in an impressive performance in the A-Class Catamaran World Championships in Florida this week.
Outteridge is relatively new to the A-Class single-handed catamaran, but he burst onto the scene with a second place finish at the Australian National Championships in January.
At first glance, his 16th place ranking this week appears disappointing. But a closer look reveals four finishes among the top six. However he also scored a ‘did not compete’ after breaking a centerboard on the first day which ballooned his point total, resulting in the higher overall ranking.
Under normal circumstances at the World Championship, Outteridge would have been able to discard at least one race, which could have resulted in a podium finish.

Artemis Racing - Red 
Crew: Nathan Outteridge (helmsman), Rodney Ardern (wingsail trimmer), Curtis Blewett(bowman), Paul Cayard (tactician), Phil Jameson (headsail trimmer)
Prediction: Outteridge certainly knows the ACWS fleet inside and out, but with Team Korea he had a tendency to put his bows where they didn’t belong and copped a lot of penalties. This is an interesting crew, however, and just might upset the establishment.

"I’ve been sailing with ‘Goobs’ (crew Iain Jensen) now for four years and everyone said we were the favourites and don’t let the country down, but we’ve done the job and we’ve done Australia proud. It’s more a relief than anything. We’ve worked so hard for so long for this." - Nathan Outteridge, 49er class, on winning Gold medal before Wednesday’s Medal Race
