After careful review of the materials submitted to support his application, a review panel from the Transpacific Yacht Club have determined that Jesse Osborn wins the Mark S. Rudiger Celestial Navigation Trophy for the recently completed 2021 Transpac.
Osborn was navigator aboard Justin Waite’s Stevens 47 Mikmaks.
The trophy is awarded to the navigator who submits celestial navigation worksheets or evidence of traditional navigation to the finish inspectors immediately after finishing, and whose work is selected as the “best” by an impartial panel of judges.
First awarded in 2011, the trophy itself is an antique brass 1905 T. Hemsley & Son silver-vernier A-frame sextant, donated by Stan Honey.
