I must be getting old because in your list of prospective nominees today I was schocked to see that neither Carleton Mitchell or Sherman Hoyt were mentioned. So shocked indeed that I actually signed up so that I could make sure they weren't neglected. Therefore please add the following to your list:

Carleton Mitchell
Sherman Hoyt

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,
