2002 Rod Stephens Award to Peter Passano

Awarded to Peter M. Passano for repairing the rig of his Sea Bear after a collision with a bergy bit near South Georgia Island. The impact had bent the bowsprit so that his mast might have carried away during his 3,000 mile solo passage across the South Atlantic Ocean. His timely action in rough conditions made the completion of this voyage possible.
