US Sailing is accepting nominations for its 2011 Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year awards, widely acknowledged as the foremost individual sailing honors in the nation. Through November 30, every member of US Sailing may nominate the one male and one female sailor they think has turned in the most outstanding on-the-water performance during the 2011 calendar year.

Nominations can be made online through US Sailing’s website.
