Ian & Jo Johnstone, with children Gill and Keely

s/v Chaotic Harmony – for sailing “Rudderless at Sea".

This award is presented in recognition of the Johnstone family for their “totally unplanned circumnavigation” from Brisbane to Brisbane as a family aboard Chaotic Harmony. Particularly notable is the account of a 2500 nm jury rigged passage after rudder loss mid-Pacific. The gripping account appears in the Flying Fish.
