Sailing Hall of Fame schedules first induction

The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame will honor its first class of inductees Oct. 23 during ceremonies scheduled to take place at the San Diego Yacht Club in California.

The hall will recognize Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing.

The National Sailing Hall of Fame was formed in 2005 and has already completed the first phase of its plan to establish a permanent facility on the historic waterfront of Annapolis, Md.

The hall is taking steps to determine the first inductees with the confirmation of its selection process. Nominations will be accepted from the general public for candidates who are American citizens, 45 years of age and older and have made a significant impact on the growth and development of the sport in the United States in categories such as design, racing, cruising, coaching and administration.

Non-citizens can be included if they also have had an impact on the sport in the United States. Posthumous nominations will be accepted.

A selection committee appointed by the hall will include representatives from the national governing body, the sailing press, the sailing industry, community sailing and the hall's founding yacht clubs.

The nomination period will run from April 1 through June 1. Inductees for 2011 will be determined by late August.
