Sail-World.com : Winning isn't everything. Really.
Winning isn't everything. Really.

'Janno Dalanon, a 13-year-old competitor, receives the Principal Race Officer award for his heroic stand during Saturday’s races at Punta Fuego.'    The Philippine Star
The 11th Punta Fuego Regatta came to a close yesterday with winners from four different categories proudly raising their trophies at the Punta Fuego Yacht Club. But it was a 13-year-old local competitor, who didn’t even finish in the top three of the lighter Optimist Class, who won the hearts of many.

Janno Dalanon, here as part of the Philippine sailing team developmental pool, received the Principal Race Officer's Award for his exemplary courage and sportsmanship. Dalanon came to the rescue of Rex Puentespina, an adult competitor in the Hobie 16 Class, when the latter’s boat capsized amid strong winds at the height of Saturday’s races.
Puentespina, a director at the Philippine Inter-island Sailing Foundation, said he was moved by Dalanon’s gesture to come to his aid even when the latter was in a race he had wanted to win.

'Our boat capsized and because of the strong winds I found myself more than 30m away from the boat and my partner. Janno stopped by to help me,' said Puentespina. Dalanon helped Puentespina into his Optimist and waited until the rescue boat arrived. He lost a lot of time doing so, and sacrificed a good finish.
