Award to William Mathews Brooks and Pam Rorke Levy for restoring the famous 1929 Olin Stephens-designed yacht Dorade , and campaigning her in the major ocean races she had sailed in her early career, including Transpac, Bermuda, Transatlantic and Fastnet. Their results in these races were extraordinary, including second in class in the 2015 Transatlantic  and Fastnet races, first  in class in the 2014 Bermuda race, and a stunning overall victory in the 2013 Transpac.  Dorade also proved the quality of her construction and restoration by finishing the very rough Transatlantic race in perfect condition.
