Nominations open for National Sailing Hall of Fame
Published on February 1st, 2015
The US National Sailing Hall of Fame is accepting online nominations for the 2015 Class of the National Sailing Hall of Fame from February 1 through April 1. After the nominating period concludes on April 1, inductees for 2015 will be determined this summer.
Nominating categories include Sailing, Technical/Design and Contributors.
Each candidate should be a U.S. Citizen; however if someone of international birth has had a significant impact on the development of the sport of sailing in the United States, they may be included.
Nominees must be 45 years of age or older. Posthumous nominations may be made 5 years postmortem or in the year the deceased would have reached 45 years of age, whichever is sooner.
This year, up to five people will be chosen from a combination of publicly-submitted nominations and carry-over nominations from last year, as determined by a selection committee appointed by the NSHOF, comprised of representatives from NSHOF, U.S. Sailing, the sailing media, the sailing industry, community sailing, a maritime museum and NSHOF founding member clubs.
The 2015 Induction Ceremony will be held on October 4 at the Bay Head Yacht Club in Bay Head, NJ.
