The London-based Ocean Cruising Club announced the recipients of its annual awards for 2014.
Each year, the group recognizes the achievements of ordinary individuals doing extraordinary things on the world’s oceans and brings those achievements to the attention of the sailing community at large.
The awards subcommittee, composed of accomplished members from around the world, made the announcement at the club’s annual January dinner.
“Judging the candidates this year involved a great deal of reading, research and analysis,” subcommittee chairwoman Jenny Franklin said. “As one judge put it, ‘it has been an inspiration to me personally to read of the amazing exploits of the members of this Club’.”
