Renowned Whitbread Round the World sailor Conny van Rietschoten died on Tuesday in Portugal. He was 87 years old.

Long regarded as one of the hard men of world sailing, and Round the World racing in particular, van Rietschoten won the 1978 and 1982 renditions of the then four stop race.

Van Rietschoten is reported to have struggled for some time with poor health and died of a stroke.
