NATIONAL SAILING HALL OF FAME SETS FIRST ANNUAL INDUCTION Log-In to Post/Reply

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Jan Harley, Media Pro, 401-849-0220




Annapolis, Md. (March 24, 2011) - NASCAR has Charlotte, Rock and Roll has Cleveland, and one can hardly watch sports on TV without hearing about Hall of Fame inductees in basketball (Springfield), baseball (Cooperstown) and tennis (Newport). Now sailing will, too.


The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame (NSHOF) is set to honor its first class of inductees on October 23, 2011, during ceremonies scheduled to take place at San Diego Yacht Club in California. The undertaking to recognize Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing is central to the mission of the NSHOF which was formed in 2005 and has already completed phase one of its plan to establish a permanent facility on the historic waterfront of Annapolis, Maryland.

Having progressed from concept to property acquisition to the establishment of an educational program, the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is now taking steps to determine the first 15 inductees with the confirmation of its selection process.

Nominations will be accepted from the general public for candidates who are American citizens, who are 45 years of age and up, and who have made significant impact on the growth and development of the sport in the U.S. in categories such as design, racing, cruising, coaching and administration, among others. Non-citizens may be included if they have also had an impact on the sport in the U.S., and posthumous nominations will also be accepted. Click here for Induction By-Laws & Rules

“We now have one place that will honor the heroes of American sailing,” said US SAILING President Gary Jobson in endorsing the NSHOF. A selection committee appointed by the NSHOF will include representatives from the national governing body, the sailing media, the sailing industry, community sailing and NSHOF founding yacht clubs.

The nomination period will run from April 1 through June 1, with the inductees for 2011 determined by late August. Through 2013, the number of inductees will not exceed 15; thereafter it will not exceed five. Details on how to submit a nomination will be available next week.

***

The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit educational institution dedicated to: Preserving the history of the sport and its impact on American culture; honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing; the teaching of math, science and American history; inspiring and encouraging sailing development; and to providing an international landmark for sailing enthusiasts.

The NSHOF has partnered with US SAILING and the U.S. Naval Academy, and is associated with the Herreshoff Marine Museum, Sailing World, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Water Trail, the Congressional Cup and Hudson River Community Sailing in its efforts to recognize role models of outstanding achievement. For more information on the NSHOF, please visit

Submitted by John Rumsey:
I think around the country you have more than a hundred people worthy of induction to the hall of fame. How about...

Peggy Slater, lowell North, Malin Burnham, Gerry Driscol, Dennis Conner, Doug Peterson, JJ Isler, Carl Eichenlaub, Bill Ficker, Dave Ulman, Bob Allen, Bill Lapworth, Owen Churchill, Hank Easom, Tim Mosley and Jim Michales (Barient, inventors of the modern winches 1955), Paul Cayard, Don Trask, Bill Buchan, Cy Gillette, Bill Bentson, Buddy Melges, Ted Turner, john Kolias. Buddy Freidichs, Randy Smyth, Ding Schoonmaker, "Captain Tuna" Wollschlager. Bill Luders, Olin Stephens and Rod, Skip Etchells, Paul Smart, Adrian Iselin, Ted Hood, Robby Doyle, Bob Bevier, Bob Direcktor, Gilbert Gray, Corney Schields, Timmy Lahr, Ted Wells, Kenny Watts...

Perhaps there should be a section for, say, 8 areas of the country with the best sailors and designers and boat builders from each mentioned because before 1950 there was not too much interaction between areas except in the Stars, Lightning and Snipe classes. There were a lot of very good sailors that did not travel in those days.

I don't need the bling.

Fred Hazzard is the guy I vote for. I have only sailed with or against him for 28 years. We have lots of pickle dishes. He has more. It could be for the J-35's, the J-24's, The Cal 20's, The C&C's.
Oregon offshore
Swiftsure
Countless US & Canadian nationals
Countless evening and weekend races

But the thing is - he is a sailor.

He is tireless when some needs help. You need to fix something before a race - Phast Phreddy is your man. He is on BOD's for sailing. He drinks a mean scotch ( I am a martini guy).

If this is not a politcal thing. Call me - I have lot's of good stories.

Hope it's not too late to add a name: Donald M. Street, Jr., the author of numerous books on sailing and cruising in the Caribbean and points south. Don was one of the first people --back in the late 1950's- to cruise the islands on his engine-less45' yacht "Iolaire", and is the author of the best guide (and of the Imray-Iolaire charts) which are essential for enjoyment and safety in the islands. His books "Seawise" and "the Ocean Sailing yacht" are great, practical volumes. He, and his endless stories, are well worth inlcusion in the Hall of Fame.

Two more names to add to the prospect list:

Robert Johnstone - While brother Rod was the design genius behind the J line of boats, Bob was the marketing genius who figured out what product would best meet the needs and demands of the sailing population.

Joe Duplin - sailing coach at Tufts University and Star World and North American Champion. Joe was coach to a generation of college sailing stars that have continued to perform at the highest levels in sailing. He was also knew how to make a boat go fast. Many sailors, his own and others, made their way to his Winthrop, MA shop to get help in making their boats perform at the highest level. He pushed the rules but often is innovations eventually were adopted as the accepted norm.

Dave Curtis ruled One Design for a number of years…even decades in some classes. And out of a roof-top loft in Marblehead…where he started with Norm Cressy (another person who should be included on the list) gave North Sails some pretty stiff competition based on Dave’s victory list. The fact that he finished 1st or 2nd in every Etchells NA’s or World Championship between 1978 and 1992, which translates into 15 years of ruling one of the most competitive One Design Classes in the World, is no small feat. And while his accomplishments in the hotly contested Etchells class are unmatched, he has numerous other One-Design Championships (Soling and J-24’s to name a few) only to prove his ability to step into any boat and sail smarter than everyone else competing against him.

And David’s heir apparent Jud Smith, who worked alongside him on his knees cutting sails and winning numerous events in the Etchells Class, including NA’s and a World Championship, as well as success in a number of other One Design Classes including the Star, or trimming the main for Dennis Connor, should be on the list as well!

And they are both past winners of the Yachtsman of the Year award.

Mark Rudiger -- A dominant navigator on the West Coast who took his expertise (with only 3 weeks prep time) to EF Language and helped walk away with the Whitbread / Volvo 1997 - 1998 in the first victorious “American-centric” effort.


And it would be nice if you correctly spelt Bob Derecktor’s last name.

Re: [The Publisher] NATIONAL SAILING HALL OF FAME SETS FIRST ANNUAL INDUCTION [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

Scuttlebutt readers have suggested 165 people that should be nominated, and now the information on how to make a formal nomination is available. See below:

The sport of sailing is a step closer to having its own “Hall of Famers” with the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame today starting the process by going live with an online form the general public is invited to use to make nominations.

Future Hall of Famers will be Americans who are 45 years of age and up, and who have made a significant impact on the growth and development of the sport in the U.S. in categories such as design, racing, cruising, coaching and administration, among others.

Non-citizens may be included if they have had an impact on the sport in the U.S., and posthumous nominations will also be accepted. The nomination period will run from April 1 through June 1, with the inductees for 2011 determined by late August.

To nominate your candidate online, click on the button above, or go to www.nshof.org and click on "Induction". You can also click on the direct link below:
http://www.nshof.org/...d=310&Itemid=124
Complete instructions on how to register and complete your nomination online are provided on the website.

“We are excited to be joining other sports that recognize the accomplishments of their most outstanding participants,” said Dick Franyo, President of the NSHOF Board. “The Hall of Fame is endorsed by U.S. Sailing, the national governing body for the sport, and judging by the feedback we have received, has the enthusiast support of many sailors around the country.”

The historic first class of inductees will be recognized on October 23, 2011, during ceremonies scheduled to take place at the San Diego Yacht Club in California. The undertaking to recognize Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing is central to the mission of the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame which was formed in 2005 and has already completed phase one of its plan to establish a permanent facility on the historic waterfront of Annapolis, Maryland. A selection committee appointed by the NSHOF will include representative from the NSHOF, U.S. Sailing, the sailing media, the sailing industry, community sailing, a maritime museum and NSHOF founding member clubs.

The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit educational institution dedicated to preserving the history of the sport and its impact on American culture; honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing; the teaching of math, science and American history; inspiring and encouraging sailing development; and to providing an international landmark for sailing enthusiasts. please visit: www.nshof.org.

Thanks for spelling Bob's name right. You may want to omit the incorrect spelling now.

Also, I like the Laser as much as the next guy, but isn't Bruce Kirby Canadian and isn't this a National (USA) Hall of Fame?

Same with Sir Thomas Lipton -- great challenger, great tea but not American.

Here are the qualifications for nominees: http://nshof.org/...tion_bylaws-2011.pdf

Among the qualifications, they do allow some latitude to consider non-nationals:

Each candidate should be a U.S. Citizen; however if someone of international birth has had a significant impact on the growth and development of the sport of sailing in the United States they may be included.

I would respectfully like to nominate Robert Dill of Burlington, Vermont for election into the Sailing Hall of Fame. Bob was the designer and builder of The Iron Duck which held the world speed record for wind-powered land yachts for over 10 years.

Thank you,

Jerrold C. Manock
