Fred Eaton was selected from Canadian sailors who were nominated for their outstanding sailing performances during 2010. His crowning achievement was the retention of the International C Class Catamaran Championship in Newport, Rhode Island in August, partnering with Magnus Clarke. Runner–up James Spithill, the 2010 America’s Cup winning helm, said in a letter supporting Fred’s nomination: 'Glenn Ashby and I were fortunate enough to have Fred offer his winning C Class Catamaran for the C Class Championship in Newport. He could have easily not chartered it out, but Fred did, and gave it to a couple of guys who were at that time on the top of their game. This to me shows how much of a competitor Fred is and that he wanted to win by beating the best and winning on the water.'
