Special Award
The Potter Yachter Senior Moment Award

Due to circumstances beyond human control, the announced race course was changed
to a shorter course as the downwind marker could not be found. However, two boats
did not get the word and sailed the original, and much longer, course (and did find
the downwind marker that had been cleverly moved). Without doubt, both boats were
the fastest on the course and would have swept the race had they sailed the shortened
course. As the skippers performed in an exemplary manner, displayed exceptional
sailing skills, and upheld Potter Yachter traditions, the race committee awarded The
Potter Yachter Senior Moment Award to:

                           CLASS B
      Goshawk (Sage 17), we can’t remember the skipper’s name

                           CLASS C
                     Sarah Anne (WWP-15), ditto

An Unofficial Award

Cruise to Cruiser Challenge Awards

Eight intrepid skippers, some with one or more crew, sailed their boats from Moss
Landing to Monterey on Friday, raced on Saturday, and braved the initial fog on
the windy sail back to Moss Landing on Sunday.  For going above and beyond expectations
while sticking with the spirit of a "Cruiser's Challenge", these fine sailors each received
a medal of honor (which they wore at every opportunity).  The inscription on the back reads:

                    Moss Landing to Monterey
                         Cruise to CC18
