It's third time lucky for Blanca Manchon [ESP] who won the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Award last night in Athens. Nominated with 3 other top boardsports performers, she was gracious in accepting the prestigeous trophy "My goal is to win gold at the Olympic Games, this would truly be a dream come true for me," said Manchón at last night's ceremony. "No Spanish sailor has ever won an Olympic windsurfing medal so I am going to do my best, we will have to see in 2012. I am still very young and I have many dreams, I want to do so many things. This will not be the last you hear of me and, who knows, I hope I will be seeing you again some day here again at these Awards!"
