For seamanship during 21,000 mile voyage from Seattle to Seattle by way of Cape Horn. His 10 months were plagued with hurricanes, squalls, and gear failures. He managed to jury-rig repairs at sea, even a loose skeg and bad rudder on a 1000-mile leg from Cocos Islands to Acapulco. Other stops: Puerta Vallarta, Falklands, Trinidad, Venezuela, Panama Canal.
