This year, up to six people will be chosen from a combination of publicly-submitted nominations and “carry-over” nominations from last year. Carry-over nominations are those people who were nominated in past years that received a high enough score to be inducted, but were out-scored by other candidates. Scoring is done by a selection committee appointed by the NSHOF, comprised of representatives from the NSHOF, U.S. Sailing, the sailing media, the sailing industry, community sailing, a maritime museum and NSHOF founding member clubs.
This year’s Induction Ceremony will be held on September 28 at the Bayview and Detroit Yacht Clubs in Detroit, Michigan.
