Augie Diaz, 49, and Hannah Swett, 34, have garnered plenty of media attention for their sailing accomplishments over the past decade, but today the athletes glowed in the national spotlight as US Sailing’s Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year.

Honoured with the sport’s highest accolade at a luncheon in Manhattan at the New York Yacht Club, Diaz and Swett graciously accepted engraved Rolex timepieces, symbols of outstanding on-water achievement in the calendar year just concluded.

Diaz was recognised for his performances as skipper in three different one-design classes (Laser, Snipe and Star), Swett for full-time dedication to her Olympic campaign in the very competitive Yngling class, which will make its debut at the 2004 Olympic Regatta in Athens, Greece.
