The Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame is a collaboration between The Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame, the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston, and Sail Canada.

Thus far, inductees have been chosen by the Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame Management Committee, with representation from across the country. The selection process is based on criteria established in the CSHOF By-Laws. In future it is intended that the nomination process will be open to the sailing public.

As per the By-Laws, any Canadian sailor who wins an Olympic or Paralympic Medal, or a World Championship in an Olympic or Paralympic class is considered an automatic Inductee. Thirteen of the fourteen 2020 Inductees meet that criterion.

“As a longstanding partner, Sail Canada is again pleased to support the Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame and the Marine Museum in this important initiative,” said Hugh McGugan, Sail Canada Board of Directors Chair. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration as we identify and celebrate individuals who are deserving of this national recognition.”

If COVID-19 pandemic conditions allow, the Induction Ceremony will take place at Kingston Yacht Club on October 17, 2020. For information: manager@marmuseum.ca
