Sailing on the ocean with a disabling disease takes a strong wind and good navigational skills.

It also takes a little moxie.

The word "moxie" means pluck, perseverance or guts.

Sailor Nick Bryan-Brown is getting the annual Moxie Award from the New England Multi-hull Association in Boston.

The 50-year-old lifelong sailor has multiple sclerosis.

Since he was diagnosed in 1989, Bryan-Brown has competed in several ocean-going races.

The association presents the award each year to a sailor with the most moxie.
