Some 70+ people attended a short presentation of the OCC Seamanship Award to Dustin Reynolds. Des Cason, recipient of the OCC Award who lives in Durban, unfortunately couldn't make it.

RCYC, who have taken Dustin to their hearts, also presented him with a self-tailing winch so he could in the future reef without using his teeth to hold the sheet!

The RCYC Commodore, Vitor Medina, RCYC Cruising Committee Alan Haefele and Peter Sherlock, OCC Port Officer Robert Ravensberg, past OCC Commodore John Franklin and OCC Rear Commodore Jenny Crickmore-Thompson were in attendance, along with some 28 skippers and crew from 13 international boats on their circumnavigations, including Jack Warren and Jan Holmes on Anthem (OCC), local OCC members Huck and Annie Endersby and Colleen Douglas, and about 40 RCYC members.

A fantastic evening! Many thanks to Royal Cape Yacht Club for providing a great venue.
