Open Nominations for Sailing Hall of Fame Awards End May 31

Know someone who deserves a little recognition for their contribution to sailing in the U.S.? You’ve got a few more days to nominate them to the Hall of Fame.

Nominations for the 2011 induction into the National Sailing Hall of Fame will be accepted from the general public for candidates who are American citizens, who are 45 years of age and up, and who have made significant impact on the growth and development of the sport in the U.S. in categories such as design, racing, cruising, coaching and administration, among others. Non-citizens may be included if they have had an impact on the sport in the U.S., and posthumous nominations will also be accepted.

The nomination period will run from April 1 through June 1, with the inductees for 2011 determined by late August. The first class of inductees will be recognized on October 23, 2011, during ceremonies scheduled to take place at the San Diego Yacht Club in California. The undertaking to recognize Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing is central to the mission of the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame which was formed in 2005 and has already completed phase one of its plan to establish a permanent facility on the historic waterfront of Annapolis, Maryland.
