After three years on the West Coast, the annual US Sailing Rolex Yachtsman & Yachtswoman of the Year Awards ceremony returned to the iconic Model Room at the New York Yacht Club in Manhattan. Held annually since 1961, this year’s event honored the accomplishments of two sailing tacticians: Terry Hutchinson, of Annapolis, Maryland, and Stephanie Roble, of East Troy, Wisconsin.
