The Endurance Award - 2013
(s/v May Morning)
While battling cancer and enduring multiple surgeries and chemotherapy, Colin bent publication deadlines to get the OCC Newsletter out without fail. Having just purchased 20-ft fixer-upper May Morning, he battled the frustration of being unable to start the work on her she so badly needed. However, determined not to let things get the better of him, in the words of his nominator “it’s Colin’s love of being out sailing and the support of his wife Mary that has kept him going steadfastly forward.” Dedication and determination have been instrumental both in his recovery and in his restoration project. Colin has been an inspiration to the members of the OCC.
