The Rose Medal - 2015

s/v Whanake -- For their a 1200 mile beat to windward in particularly unpleasant conditions to reach the Northern end of the Chilean Channels.

Not wanting to motor through the Channels and determined to sail as much as was possible, they endured seven months of cold, wet and uncomfortable sailing to achieve their goal. This is sailing in the true essence of the OCC.
