'The annual Yachting Awards provide the ideal opportunity to officially recognise and celebrate those who contribute so much to, and achieve so much in, sailing.

'From athletes competing on the world stage to the vast number of tireless volunteers involved at every level of the sport, sailing relies heavily on the contribution of everyday Australians so I encourage anybody who feels they know of an individual who should be considered for an award to make a nomination,' said Gotze.
