the king is dead. long live the king.

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 11.47.27 AM“King Knut” transformed the Volvo Ocean Race from an offshore design contest to a media-centric one-design race around the world, and his iron fist characterized his 10 year-rule of the world’s most-watched sailboat race.  That all ends today in a shock announcement that the King is stepping down ‘to dedicate time to his family’ (translation: The gorgeous Mrs. Frostad told Knut ‘stay home or don’t come home’ to help raise his two young children.  The hard-core search has already begun for the next VOR boss, and of course we’ve got our own shortlist. SA’s choices:

 

1) Mark Turner (OC Sports)

2) Jamie Boag (ADOR Principal)

3) Bouwe Bekking (Team Brunel/Sailing Holland)

4) Karin Bäcklund (the hyper-competent girl who runs VOR background for years) c

5) Russell Coutts (ummm….just kidding!)

Who do you think could best bring the VOR into its next era? Let us know here.
