Linton & Barkow Win

Lightning World Champion Jeff Linton (Tampa, Fla.) and Princess Sofia Trophy Yngling Champion Sally Barkow (Nashotah, Wis.) took center stage today during a special luncheon in the model room of the New York Yacht Club in Manhattan. The sailors won US SAILING’s Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year Award, this country’s most prestigious honor in the sport. They were recognized for their outstanding on-the-water performances during the 2007 calendar year and presented with engraved Rolex timepieces.
