We remind you that. in this phase (which will end on April 15, at 12 noon) your vote is advisory: the ball will pass to the Jury of the Journal of Sailing, composed of the editorial staff of the magazine assisted by a “pool” of its main contributors , which will also take into account your preferences to select the finalists among whom, at the Evening of Champions on May 3 at the TAG Heuer VELAFestival of Santa Margherita, the Sailor of the Year and all the other awards will be revealed) but the tussle is as heated as ever. In the lead is always Morgan IV, Nicola de Gemmis’ Grand Soleil 39, which seems the most “papable” candidate for the TAG Heuer Most Voted award, reserved for those who took the most preferences from the public by adding up the three selection phases
