SailGP athlete Tom Slingsby was awarded the top prizes at the 2021 Rolex World Sailor of the Year Awards on Thursday 2 December 2021.

Slingsby, the Australia Driver, claimed 29 per cent of the male vote after an impressive year which sees his team - who also won the Season 1 championship in 2019 - currently lead the SailGP leaderboard with just two events to go. He also defended the Moth World Championship with 13 wins out of 14, and was part of the winning crew for the 2021 Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Speaking following his win, Slingsby said: "This is a huge honour for me. Thank you to everyone who voted. I remember when I was 15 years old, I wrote down my career goals and it was to win the Olympic Gold medal, win the America's Cup and win World Sailor of the Year. I am very fortunate, this is the second time I have won the World Sailor of the Year award.

"I am so lucky to be in the position I am and to get these amazing opportunities. Congratulations to all the other guys, there were some unbelievable sailors nominated this year."
