Best
Sailor:

Highly
competitive sports very rarely produce an athlete that totally
and completely dominates the competition, and when they come
along, they change everything. Rohan
Veal
has done exactly that in the International Moth class.
He might’ve earned an SA award just for his annihilation of
a talented field at the Worlds in Garda this year, but what
clinched it for us was the effect that his technique and promotion
has had on the entire world of foiling boats. Were it not
for Rohan, it’s pretty safe to say that foiling would be years
away from where it is now, and like the best sportsman, Rohan
has gone into early retirement while still on top, letting
the rest of the planet catch up to his level of skill and
style. Oh yeah, and as the Director of Sales for BladeRider,
he’s managed to get so many boats sold that the factory can’t
keep up with demand.
