1997 Blue Water Medal to PETER GOSS aboard Aqua Quorum

For the extraordinary feat of returning 160 miles upwind, in a Force 10 gale, to locate fellow competitor Ralph Dinelli during the Vendee Globe single-handed, round-the-world race. After searching for 20 hours, he hoisted Dinelli, suffering from hypothermia, on board and sailed 1800 miles to Tasmania while caring for his passenger.
