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.

He's from an earlier era, but deserving of consideration: Myron F "Hook" Beardsley. He sailed out of Newport Harbor Yacht Club in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, was two-time World Star Champion (in the 30s), and at least six-times Coast Rhodes champion.

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.
