Elaine Dickinson, of Davidsonville, Md., was honored Saturday with the 2012 Leadership in Women’s Sailing Award.

Sponsored by the National Women’s Sailing Association and BoatUS, the award was given at the Women’s Sailing Conference, hosted by the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass. It is given to someone who has built a record of achievement in inspiring, educating and enriching the lives of women through sailing.

"Elaine took the initiative to encourage women of all ages to try sailing," association president Joan Thayer said in a statement.

Dickinson learned to sail as a young adult and has since been immersed in boating both personally and professionally. She worked for 26 years with BoatUS’s Government Public Affairs and Publications department.

She has been an active advocate of sailing, especially in regard to safety and awareness about women’s sailing education, and has served on the National Safe Boating Council, the Coast Guard Boating Safety Advisory Council and NOAA’s Hydrographic Services Review Panel.
