Comments from the Special Awards Commitee

BOAT OF THE DAY
TRINITY TIDE, a Thames Waterman Cutter, twice winner of the Great River Race, captained by Joe Lane of Trinity House, originally from Cork. Trinity Tide and her skipper have taken part in all 12 Ocean to City races since the first race in 2005.

BOAT-BUILDER OF THE DAY
The builder of the East Coast Skiff AN GABHAR, with an all-female crew from Skerries, is Martin O’Toole. The standard of build of these beautiful clinker boats, with straight stem and stern, has been consistently high during the history of the Ocean to City Race.

INNOVATIVE DESIGN PRIZE
Aerolite Whitehall Type rowing boat, Hal Sisk. An innovative design and build commissioned by serial boat restorer and rescuer, Hal Sisk. Taken from the lines of his father’s punt built by Pierce Power in Passage West in the 1940s it has a see-through fabric skin and an exquisite wooden minimalist structure. It also rows quite well. The builder is from Tasmania.

COMMUNITY-BUILD PRIZE
NAMA, rowed by Ger and Niall Crowley from RARI Rowing Club, Bray, is one of 5 similar boats (2 at Ocean to City) built with two local youth clubs. Ger and crew members rowed this tiny boat all the way round Ireland in 2015 and raised €150,000 plus for Cystic Fibrosis charities.

SELF-BUILT BOAT PRIZE
JEAN, a new take on the skin-boat (painted polyester fabric on cedar frame) was built over the Winter by Anthony Keating from Crosshaven and rowed by him and his son John in the Ocean to City Race. The boat is designed by Dave Gentry, USA,and has siding seats for rowing.
