The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame on Wednesday announced the 10 people who will make up its 2013 class of inductees into the National Sailing Hall of Fame.
Following a two-month period this spring during which sailors from all corners of the country nominated their choice for induction, a selection committee – made up of representatives from US Sailing, the sailing media, the sailing industry, community sailing, a maritime museum, a previous inductee and the Hallf of Fame board – reviewed the broad spectrum of nominations.
Inductees are American citizens, 45 years of age or older, who have made significant impact on the growth and development of the sport in the U.S. in the categories of Sailing, Technical/Design and Contributor (coach, administrator, sailing media).
The 2013 class of inductees will be formally celebrated at the official Induction Ceremony on Oct. 27 at the Annapolis City Dock – site of the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame – adjacent to the U.S. Naval Academy.
