9. Grant Dalton – $2 Million
Grant Stanley Dalton, OBE (born 1 July 1957), is a New Zealand sailor who has competed in five Whitbread Round the World Races and currently manages Team New Zealand.
Dalton is a professional sailor who started sailing at the age 8 in the P Class and soon started racing as a member of Maraetai Sail ing Club. He was awarded an OBE in the 1995 New Year Honours, for services to yachting. He was shortlisted in 2001 by the International Sailing Federation for the ISAF World Sailor of the Year Awards.
His other passion away from sailing is motor racing; as an avid F1 fan and with life with Emirates Team New Zealand more settled than a round-the-world campaign, he can now race on the New Zealand motor racing circuit.
