ABOUT US

WE ARE SAILORS. JOIN US.

We believe that sailing teaches critical life skills, including athleticism, teamwork, leadership, self-reliance and responsibility.

We believe what you see on the water will change the way you see life on land.

We believe people who never sailed are missing something.

We believe we can change that.

The National Sailing Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization that promotes sailing by preserving America’s sailing legacy, celebrating its heroes and engaging the next generation.

VISION

We envision an America where people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities can participate in sailing, the sport for a lifetime.

STRATEGY STATEMENT

The National Sailing Hall of Fame promotes sailing by recognizing its heroes; highlighting sailing’s contribution to the American culture and experience; and demonstrating its value as a hands-on tool for scholastic and life skills learning.

WE ARE SAILORS

We believe in the road less traveled, even if it isn’t a road at all.

We believe getting there isn’t half the fun; it’s all the fun.

We believe we could get where we’re going faster, but we wouldn’t be better when we got there.

We believe being different makes all the difference.

Pushing the limit is the norm, not the exception. 

And speaking another language brings us together – and yet sets us apart.

We believe that confidence is the true measure of wealth.

We believe the sea is fickle soul who will earn your respect.

We believe the stars in the night sky are there for a reason.

We believe what you see on the water will change the way you see life on land.

We believe people who have never sailed are missing something. 

We believe we can change that.

We are sailors. Join us.
