2017 Recipient of the Southbound II Award
Dave Skolnick's many contributions to SSCA certainly meet the criterion for the Southbound II Award. Dave has served on the SSCA Board of Directors and as its president. For years, Dave has served as an active volunteer and has shared his considerable knowledge and expertise in dozens of webinars on numerous cruising subjects. He has been a valued speaker at over 15 gams and a popular presenter on Seven Seas U. One topic that is always in demand is his discussion on passagemaking and preparation - including crew selection and the all-important care and feeding of the crew.
Dave has been the speaker coordinator at the Annapolis Gam and has been an active and engaged cruising station host in Annapolis, helping cruisers acquire parts and services, along with providing transportation and an address to receive packages. He started the cruiser lunch gatherings in Eastport, Maryland. A frequent Commodores' Bulletin and Cruisers' Workshop contributor, Dave has been a valued and constant volunteer helping with whatever needs to be done. For these and numerous examples that exemplify SSCA's Clean Wake tradition, we recognize Dave with the Southbound II award.
