After four days of sailing 12 races, everyone was a winner at the 2009 Orange Bowl hosted by Coral Reef Yacht Club. The weather had cooperated with lots of sunshine and wind. Co-Chairs Wendy Kamilar and Pat Ficaro set out the many awards and Registrar Carol Ewing filled the huge silver Trophy Bowl with oranges. Everyone was ready for trophies and the Magnus Liljedahl Sportsmanship Award. The 722 sailors cheered as Coral Reef Yacht Club (CRYC) Commodore Mark Kamilar and US sailing Olympians James Barton, Magnus Liljedahl and current US Sailing AlphaGraphic members, Zach Railey and Anna Tunnicliffe.

This year the award went to Opti Green Fleeter Carolina Mantilla from Miami, Florida. She was nominated 8 times for consistently finishing every race even though in last place most of the time. Magnus says, 'It is totally an act of sportsmanship. Never quit a race because it is not fair to your competitors and it is not fair to yourself'.
