Jim Bishop of New York City was presented the 2008 J/Boats Leadership Award during the annual J/44 awards party at the New York Yacht Club last month.

"Behind every successful one design there's a person that's the glue, the visionary, the life of the party," said Jeff Johnstone, president of J/Boats, in a statement. "Since 1989, Jim Bishop has been that person for the J/44 Class."

Under Bishop's presidency, the J/44 class achieved an unprecedented one-design start for the 1994 Bermuda Race and has continued the streak of continuous class starts through 2008, according to the company.
