Bateman Cruising Station Award

This award is presented to a volunteer Cruising Station host who has assisted visiting cruisers and particularly SSCA members in a significant capacity, and who has made an effort to promote SSCA and recruit new members. The award is named for George and Dorothy Bateman, of Opua, New Zealand. The Batemans became an SSCA Cruising Station in 1984 and received the Cruising Station of the Year award in 2005. Their outstanding support and assistance to cruisers is described and documented in the November, 2006 Commodores Bulletin.
