HALL OF FAME
HOME TO AMERICAN SAILING LEGENDS
Welcome to the Home of the National Sailing Hall of Fame
Sailing in America has been shaped by generations of individuals who have demonstrated the courage and conviction to plot their own courses, defy convention and redefine excellence. Ours is a sport that has evolved because of these unique individuals and their contributions. This year’s induction class is a shining example. Their stories span over 150 years and their varied backgrounds and talents culminate in excellence. While their methods and perspectives may differ, they are all motivated by a shared passion for harnessing wind and water, and inspired by the magic that happens when the two intersect. The achievements of this years’ inductees, on and off the water, have contributed to the culture and experience that is sailing in America. Our sport, the sport of a lifetime, is unique because of them.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2020!
The Class of 2020 was formally announced on June 23, 2020 and will be inducted in a virtual ceremony September 12, 2020.
