Southbound II Award
This award was created to recognize individuals and/or organizations whose volunteer efforts have rendered a valuable service to the well-being of the blue water sailing community. It is presented on a periodic basis when appropriate (not necessarily annually).
A member of SSCA donated monies to be used to recognize those who have significantly helped sailors living the full-time cruising lifestyle. The conditions of the donation were that the donor remain anonymous; that the award be named to honor Herb Hilgenberg, whose boat as well as his famous high frequency radio station named Southbound II; and that Herb Hilgenberg be the first recipient. The award consists of a crystal sailboat trophy and may include a monetary remuneration. Herb was, indeed, the first recipient of the award in 1999.
