2012 saw a series of successful events for the EFPT (European Freestyle Pro Tour), culminating in the King and Queen of the Wind right here in the UK. The EFPT have recently run a vote to give you the chance to honour the top sailor of the year and Boards are please to share the news that this title has gone to Britain’s own Adam Sims!
Sims not only competed in the tour but was one of the key organisers of the Weymouth event, it was surely the combination of these two talents that has seen him become sailor of the year.
“We had a fantastic time this year on the tour, there was a lot of support from the industry, the event organisers and the competitors themselves. The idea behind this competition was to help highlight the supporting industry brands of the EFPT and to promote the sailors and the tour through the public vote. We had a number of important characters from all over Europe within the draw, which saw almost 1,200 LIKES and 250 SHARES. Our final winner really deserved it due to his consistent and great overall result (8th place) but also for being a huge driving force as one of the organisers of the final EFPT stop in Weymouth, England. This was also a first for the UK and we hope to return there at the end of this year. Congratulations to all the nominees and competitors on this years European Freestyle Pro Tour.”
