Stan and Anna are the 2010 Rolex Yachtsman and Woman of the Year.

Congrats to both, very well deserved.

Although I have not been active in too many years, Bill Brangiforte has been working hard over the years in many regattas, and for him to finally win the Sunfish NA's is benefitting for my vote. Grass roots sailing at its best in the Sunfish class. Former 5 time NA Champ Jeff Linton was the recipient a couple of years ago. ( and well deserving, I might add)

So many on the list deserve the praise as Yachtspeople of the year. I think the womans list is deeper in talent. Why wasn't Julien D. nominated for his BDA win 2 years ago? Probably because it is only one event. Rives is a great guy and an awesome sailor, but yachtsman of the year?

J McKee or Stan H. for the men

Genny or Anna for the women
