Jean-Baptiste Bernaz narrowly wins the 2022 Sailor of the Year title, ahead of Charles Caudriller

by admin

After a very close vote, Jean-Baptiste Bernaz was elected Sailor of the Year last week. Fréjusien was one vote ahead of the Breton Charles Caudrelier, who nevertheless beat Rhum’s way.

This is a little surprise in the world of sailing. The 2022 sailor was elected last Friday in Paris, and while Thomas Royant, Marion Mortevon, Adrien Bosson, Pauline Courtois or even Charles Caudriller were vying for the title, it was Jean-Baptiste Bernaz who was crowned. The first time in his career. An impressive reward for a French Olympian who has developed in lasers, a discipline less well-known than ocean racing.

A golden year for Jean-Baptiste Bernaz

The 35-year-old from Var has been in a season of more impressive success than others since he claimed a historic treble. He had notably won the title of world champion, a first for a Frenchman in lasers. In June, Jean-Baptiste Bernaz won the Military World Championships before doing the same at the Mediterranean Games in July. And while he’s now aiming for Olympic gold in 2024, Frejus’ native was elected Sailor of the Year at the end of the suspense period. The coronation took place in the second round of the table where the gap was small (only one vote) between him and leader Charles Caudriller.

Charles Caudriller did not go far

Maxi helmsman Edmond de Rothschild was the most likely candidate to succeed Yannick Bestaven. Charles Caudriller had already signed a nearly perfect season by winning the majority of his races. We remember in particular his brilliant victory at Finistère Atlantic or his record-breaking crossing of the Atlantic Ocean on the Romm Road a few weeks earlier. But Fouesnantais, who had already won the title in 2018 after winning the Volvo Ocean Race, was overtaken by a stronger than him this year.
