Nominations to close for 2015 US National Sailing Hall of Fame
Published on March 18th, 2015
The window for making nominations for the 2015 Class of the US National Sailing Hall of Fame closes on April 1, 2015. After the nominating period concludes on April 1, inductees for 2015 will be determined this summer.
Nominating categories include Sailing, Technical/Design and Contributors.
Candidates 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.
To include with nomination:
* Collect as much supporting information, pictures and stories as you can gather to include with your nomination. Don’t assume that the nominating committee already knows your candidate and his or her accomplishments, no matter how famous they are.
* Prepare your supporting writeup first on your computer using a text editor first. That way you can copy and paste your writeup into the online form quickly, without worrying about losing your thoughts if your web browser hangs.
* Get your nomination in EARLY! Our volunteer staff is small, and the earlier you get your nomination in, the more time they have to process your entry and get it ready for the nominating committee.
