To be the Ocean Racer of the Year, it's more than just winning races and more about seamanship and contributions over a number of years.

  • ORCV Commodore 2004 2006
  • Was part of the team who secured the Footscray premises
  • Developed training sessions for long offshore races
  • ORCV Race Director
  • National Equipment Auditor for Cat 1 races
  • Helped conceptualise the Latitude race and
  • The ongoing leadership with his crew who enjoy the ocean and camaraderie it offers. 

Angus commented "the crew deserve this award" having sailed with the same crew for a very long time who have supported and been also part of this sailing life.
