2013 RORC Season's Points Championship Winners Announced - RORC Yacht of the Year - Courrier Vintage, MC34 Patton, co-owned by Sam Marsaudon and long time RORC member and supporter Géry Trentesaux
IRC Overall
Piet Vroon's Ker 46, Tonnerre de Breskens 3

For many sailors the icing on the cake after a tough and competitive season is the selection of the 'RORC Yacht of the Year' by the RORC Main Committee and this year's selection had a number of very good candidates. Arriving at their decision the Committee were impressed with the results of one boat who won its class in the Cervantes Trophy, North Sea, De Guingand Bowl, Rolex Fastnet and Cherbourg Races.

Winning the Somerset Memorial Trophy for RORC Yacht of the Year and the Emily Verger Plate for winning IRC Two overall is Courrier Vintage, an MC34 Patton co-owned by Sam Marsaudon and long time RORC member and supporter Géry Trentesaux.

Géry was both delighted and surprised to receive the award as he was second to Piet Vroon's Ker 46 Tonnerre de Breskens in IRC overall:

"Yacht of the Year is the cherry on the cake and it is an official recognition from the RORC of our season," commented Géry. "We reached both of our two objectives from the beginning of the season, winning Spi Ouest and Fastnet in our Class. I am thinking of my father, who was a member of RORC in the seventies and who died just before the start of the Morgan Cup."
