Palo Alto's Honey named nation's top yachtsman: "U.S. Sailing has named Palo Alto's Stan Honey its 2010 Yachtsman of the Year. He beat out nine other finalists and will be honored Feb. 25 at a luncheon at the New York Yacht Club. He will receive a specially engraved Rolex timepiece.

He was cited as 'one of the most outstanding offshore sailors known worldwide' by a member of the award's selection panel.

Honey becomes the second American to receive the honor for the fastest circumnavigation of the globe, following Cam Lewis in 1993."
