Nominations for the Yachting Journalists’ Association (YJA) Apollo Boats Yachtsmen of the Year award and the YJA Apollo Boats Young Sailor of the Year award were launched at this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show.
Former winner Geoff Holt cast the first nomination during a short presentation.
The nominations were launched at the show by YJA honorary secretary and former chairman June Hamilton.
She said: “The YJA is delighted with the new sponsorship arrangements between the YJA and Apollo Boats Ltd – and are looking forward to working in partnership for the next three years or more, with such an exciting entrepreneur as Nick Davis and his team.
“The YJA is pleased that the sponsorship has been taken up by such an innovative maritime company based in Britain – a very suitable sponsor for our British Yachtsman and British Young Sailor of the Year.”
Nick Davis, chief executive officer of Cowes-based Apollo Boats Ltd, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the YJA Yachtsman of the Year and YJA Young Sailor of the Year awards.”
