Born in 1996 to salute the achievements of Irish sailing stars the Afloat Sailor of the month awards nearly pre-date the internet!
From 2009 the monthly and annual awards are documented online here but for the moment the record of monthly award winners for 12 years from 1996 to 2008 are preserved only in print. They're proudly named in the back issues of Afloat magazine, Ireland's boating publication.
We are working towards publishing these years online too. Watch this space for our full roll of honour from 1996 onwards. Thanks for your interest!
