Hattie Rogers – after winning the SailGP WASZP INSPIRE Grand Final in San Francisco.
Hattie Rogers as the youngest-ever winner of the trophy. Hattie, described as ‘the face of the foiling generation’ by esteemed sailing journalist Magnus Wheatley, won the SailGP WASZP INSPIRE Grand Final in San Francisco and is an integral part of the Athena Pathway Programme in the ETF26 Series.
On winning the trophy Hattie said: “I didn’t even expect to be nominated let alone win! To be alongside Dylan, Richard and Tom – who have had fantastic years – it’s just mad. Winning this award in the year that my Grandpa died, because he won it for his One Ton Cup win in 1974, makes it really special not only to me but the whole family. A really proud moment for the Rogers family.”
