Abu Dhabi’s Nick Dana, CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand’s Hamish Hooper have been short-listed next to Yann Riou of Groupama for the prestigious Inmarsat Media Crew Member Award for Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race.

The winner of the prize will be revealed later tonight at the overall prize-giving ceremony in the Race Village in Abu Dhabi.

Jon Bramley, Volvo Ocean Race Communications Director, said: “Once again, it has been such a difficult choice for us even to whittle down the list to three from the six MCMs.


“We have looked at how the guys told the dramatic story of Leg 2 across the various media: video, stills and text.


“Without the fantastic work by our MCMs on board the six boats of the fleet we simply wouldn’t be able to relay the drama and excitement of the Volvo Ocean Race to our growing army of fans. They are literally our eyes and ears on the ocean and all do a fantastic job.”


New Zealander Hooper would make it a double if he gets the judges’ final vote, having won the prize for his work on Leg 1 from Alicante to Cape Town.
