John Gore-Grimes

OCC Barton Cup - 1982

for his outstanding cruise from Ireland to Disko Bay, Greenland and back in his Nicholson 31, at a time when high latitude cruising in GRP boats was almost unheard of. He caused a stir at the 1986 Annual Dinner when he ordered champagne, filled the Barton Cup (which does not have a hole in the bottom!) and passed it around the table.
