||Pegasus Project Honored at Boosters’ Annual Dinner
September 17, 1999 Ove Wittstock, Executive Director of the Berkeley Boosters, thanked the Pegasus Project for supporting the Berkeley Boosters at its annual dinner on September 16, 1999.“Money cannot provide what is given by the volunteers on the Pegasus Project and the Nautilus Institute. The Pegasus is available to the Boosters for about twenty days of voyaging on San Francisco Bay each year,” he added.
“Thank you. We could not have done it without you,” he said.
Bill Proctor, coordinator of crew training for the Pegasus Project and captain of many of the day and overnight voyages with Booster teenagers; and Peter Hayes, Co-Director of the Nautilus Institute, were present at the dinner. Berkeley Mayor, Shirley Dean, and Berkeley Chief of Police, D.E. Butler, were among many city leaders attending the dinner.
Also present were the Berkeley Boosters teenagers who have sailed on Pegasus. Cathy Corliss, Outdoor Program Manager, also spoke to the dinner and thanked Captain Proctor on behalf of the kids for the hard work of the Pegasus volunteers.

Nautilus East Timor Coverage
The Nautilus Institute is responding to the urgent crisis in East Timor by compiling unique assessments and analyses by key experts from throughout the world in an effort to promote and broaden debate over appropriate responses to the crisis. This series of short papers address issues such as the sources of authority for actors in East Timor and in Indonesia with respect to the crisis; the roles for outside parties in the crisis (including the United Nations, the ASEAN Regional Forum, the United States, and other regional states); the prospect of forceful international intervention in East Timor; the contrast of the cases of East Timor and Kosovo; and the implications of the crisis for regional and global security and human rights regimes.
Many of these analyses are being produced specifically for the Nautilus Institute. Since September 7, the Nautilus Institute has distributed over a dozen analyses, press releases and media overviews through the Northeast Asia Peace and Security Network (NAPSNet); this material can be accessed on the NAPSNet Special Reports section of the Nautilus web site. The institute will continue to solicit and disseminate analyses and sponsor related activities as long as the crisis continues. We welcome all responses to this endeavor.
