Inaugural Mark Rudiger Transpac Trophy Winner!

June 15, 2011

A new trophy in Mark’s name was introduced into the Transpacific Yacht Race.   The first recipient of the “Mark Rudiger Celestial Navigation Trophy” was Dave Snodgrass, navigator of Relentless 32.   The Rudiger family congratulates Dave, and appreciates all the trophy entrants who still take celestial navigation seriously as the important skill and art that it is.

The Rudiger family and Rudi’s Mates are excited by Mark’s honoring in such a perfect way – with the Transpacific Yacht Race, an event Mark considered to be a part of him; doing Transpac was always coming home for Mark. The Rudigers offer much thanks and gratitude to Stan Honey and the Transpac Board of Directors for their efforts in this special recognition.
