Nominations sought for National Sailing Hall of Fame

The online nomination process for the 2011 class of the National Sailing Hall of Fame will end at midnight June 1.

Nominations for induction into the National Sailing Hall of Fame are being accepted from the general public for candidates who are American citizens 45 and older who have had 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 have had an impact on the sport in this country, and posthumous nominations also will be accepted.

After the June 1 deadline, a selection committee appointed by the National Sailing Hall of Fame will review the nominations. The 2011 inductees will be determined by late August.

The first class of inductees will be recognized Oct. 23 during ceremonies that are scheduled to take place at the San Diego Yacht Club.

“We are excited to be joining other sports that recognize the accomplishments of their most outstanding participants,” said Dick Franyo, president of the board of the Hall of Fame, in a statement. “The Hall of Fame is endorsed by US Sailing, the national governing body for the sport and, judging by the feedback we have received, has the enthusiastic support of many sailors around the country.”
