MS Amlin Boat Insurance are delighted to continue as title sponsor of the Yachting Journalists' Association's Yachtsman of the Year, Young Sailor of the Year and Young Blogger of the Year awards for 2020.

Following the huge success of the inaugural, star-studded gala dinner hosted at the Grand Cafe in Southampton, the 2020 event will again return on the first night of the Southampton International Boat Show. The 2019 event saw key members of the yachting press, marine industry figureheads and an array of sailing talent join together to unveil and celebrate the award winners.

"The YJA Awards are the greatest recognition of yachting talent in the UK, with any member of the public able to nominate their favourite sailor, followed by the expert YJA members vote to decide the final winner. Supporting the industry through sponsorship of the awards is a privilege and we look forward to building upon the event in 2019 to make 2020 even more memorable." Paul Knox-Johnston - Business Development Manager - MS Amlin Boat Insurance

The prestigious 2019 Sailor of the Year was presented to Lucy Macgregor, four-time winner of the Women's Match Racing World Championship after her victory at the Lysekil Women's Match in August 2019, 'Team Mac' took the final 3-0 against French skipper Claire Leroy. With so many key yachting events due to take place during 2020, including the Olympics, SailGP and America's Cup warm up events, competition will be intense for the main prize.

Chairman of the YJA, Cliff Webb said, "We are delighted that MS Amlin have renewed their support of the awards and the gala dinner after the success of last year. These awards are recognised worldwide and the list of winners, dating back to 1955, includes many of the greatest names in boating. Together with MS Amlin, we aim to ensure this is a glittering night to remember, and which sets the standard for the rest of the industry to follow."

The YJA MS Amlin Gala Awards Dinner is an exclusive invitation only event, but new for 2020 MS Amlin Boat Insurance will be providing chances to win tickets to this prestigious awards ceremony. Watch out for your opportunity to get hold of a golden ticket over the coming months.
