Terry Hutchinson of Annapolis was named Wednesday as US Sailing's 2014 Rolex Yachtsman of the Year. Hutchinson, 46, will be honored Feb. 26 during a luncheon at the New York Yacht Club in Manhattan, when he will be presented with an engraved Rolex timepiece. He also won the award in 2008. One member of the selection panel remarked that Hutchinson "has this magic; he is the lead figure in campaigns for a lot of different classes," while another noted that he is "committed and passionate about being at the top of his game." As tactician on Alex Roepers' Plenty, Hutchinson won the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship, capping a successful season that included a victory in the Rolex Farr 40 North American Championship and the California Cup and class honors at the Rolex Big Boat Series. He also reclaimed the world championship title in the TP52 class, collecting a class win at Quantum Key West Race Week as well as the TP52 U.S. Championship title. His success in one-design classes did not stop there. In the RC44, he won the Oman Cup as tactician; in the J/70 class, he won the Fall Brawl in his hometown; and he finished second at the Melges 32 Gold Cup, again as tactician. "Being honored for this award is just an incredible feeling," said Hutchinson. "It is acknowledgement of the hard work done in 2014. Knowing that 99 percent of my season was as a tactician, it also represents the team concept and the process that goes into winning. I am incredibly fortunate to have the support of family and great team mates; not much separates those two entities. In 2014, as always, we were only as smart as we were fast and that comes at the hand of some great helmsmen in Alex Roepers, Ed Baird and Doug Devos. Being awarded the Rolex Yachtsman of the Year Award for a second time is quite humbling. It puts me into a group of American yachtsman that I have always respected and admired for their achievements on the water. I am struggling to find the words, as I am incredibly appreciative of those around me. Quite honestly, I am a bit blown away." Stephanie Roble of East Troy, Wis., won Yachtswoman of the Year.
