“It’s always wonderful to win Key West. What a great regatta and what fabulous sailing. I thought the team was just magnificent. I’m just really proud of everybody,” DeVos said. “What the whole team does to prepare the boat is outstanding. It’s always dialed in perfectly for the conditions. And what they do to get it around the course is spectacular. To drive this boat is a dream because you don’t have to worry about anything but driving because you know everything else is covered.”
DeVos also had high praise for Benjamin, who was just named 2015 Role Yachtsman of the Year. Spookie also had four bullets and three seconds with the difference in the regatta coming down to a fourth place finish in Race 3 for Benjamin’s team.
“Steve and the entire Spookie team are terrific, just outstanding sailors. It was neck-and-neck the whole way. They sailed incredibly well and really pushed us hard. Fortunately, we were able to eke out a few seconds here and there on the race course,” said DeVos, who was presented with a special award for his contributions to the sport of sailing at tonight’s final prizegiving ceremony.
