Here are some moments in sailing history stored in the Scuttlebutt archives…

5 years ago: The Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) honored five individuals for their contributions to the sport of college sailing by inducting them into the ICSA Hall of Fame. Jack Swikart (Rumson, N.J.) was recognized with the James Rousmaniere Award for student leadership; Capt. Richard Morin, USN, Ret. (Annapolis, Md.) was honored with the Lifetime Service Award; Adam Werblow (St. Mary’s City, Md.) was awarded the Graham Hall Award for Outstanding Service by a college sailing professional; and Charles Harvey Kaye Williamson (Ithaca, NY.) and Robert A. Migliaccio (Barrington, R.I.) were awarded Outstanding Service by a volunteer. (Scuttlebutt 4344)

10 years ago: New maritime safety regulations, including outright bans on all boats with engines, by local authorities in Ireland could pose a threat to boating in that country. The Irish Sailing Association (ISA) said the laws could also threaten yacht racing in much of the country. The Irish Times reported that boat users are already breaking laws in Dun Laoghaire, which is one of the largest boating centres in Ireland. Rules intended to promote beach safety ban boats 300 metres from the shore, including popular boating destinations like Dalkey Island that have no beaches. (Scuttlebutt 3107)

15 years ago: Three legends of America’s Cup sailing – George “Fritz” Jewett Jr. (San Francisco, Calif.), Alan Payne (1921-1995, Australia), and Jack Sutphen (San Diego, Calif.) have been named as the 2005 inductees to the America’s Cup Hall of Fame. Each of this year’s inductees played a crucial role in America’s Cup campaigns during much of the modern era of the Cup, respectfully as syndicate head, designer, and sailor. The inductees will be honored on the occasion of the Rolex America’s Cup Hall of Fame 13th Annual Induction Ceremony to be held Friday, October 14, 2005. This black-tie dinner, sponsored by longtime supporter Rolex Watch U.S.A., will be at the St. Francis Yacht Club, San Francisco, CA. (Scuttlebutt 1851)
