Nominations open for Old Pulteney Maritime Heroes Award

Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky and US Sailing recently announced nominations are now open for the 2013 Maritime Heroes Award.

Now in its second year, the 2013 Maritime Heroes Award is seeking men and women across the United States that have made outstanding contributions to the longevity and accessibility of sailing. Members of sailing communities across the county are encouraged to nominate someone they feel has gone above and beyond to educate, volunteer, advocate or simply encourage participation in sailing within their local community – or beyond.

“The 2012 award brought forth so many deserving people who are doing significant work within their communities,” said Pat Graney, President of International Beverage USA. “Our partnership with US Sailing has helped us to connect with this community of people and recognize those who give back to the maritime lifestyle.”

Nominations for the Old Pulteney Maritime Heroes Award will be accepted from June 3 to Aug. 31 at

Finalists will be selected by Old Pulteney and US Sailing representatives. A public vote will then be held on the website and the 2013 Maritime Hero will be announced and honored at a ceremony in February 2014 during US Sailing’s Sailing Leadership Forum in San Diego.
