Lifetime Achievement Award

When you talk with Tim Hogan, he will tell you one of his greatest accomplishments is helping his four children become top sailors.  He told the Los Angeles Times, “I think the best thing about sailing for me has been watching my four children (Casey, Patrick, Matthew, Scott) enjoy the sport as much as I did.”

Since 2005 he has been President of the Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA). In the process he has become the champion of building interscholastic sailing in the United States.  Hogan and his Board virtually doubled the roster of teams over the past twenty years from about 330 until at the end of 2022 there were 626 high schools with competitive sailing teams.  Many of the high school sailors go on to compete in intercollegiate sailing.  These young sailors spend their future lives racing and spending time on the water.  Hogan has made a vital contribution to sailing in this country.  Tim says, “My initial inspiration for growing high school sailing was my four kids.  It quickly became apparent that this was an incredible opportunity to grow youth sailing.

Tim Hogan grew up in Newport Beach, California.   He improved his sailing skills as a youngster racing the popular Snowbirds and Sabots out of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club.  He went on to University of Southern California and was a three-time All American sailor.  His team, including Argyle Campbell, Susan Barneson and Cynthia (Cece) Cotton, won the Intercollegiate North American Championship in 1970 in a highly competitive regatta in Madison, Wisconsin.   Hogan was named College Sailor of the Year in 1969.  In 1970 he won B Division at the nationals.

Professionally, Hogan has had a long career in real estate in Southern California. He was president of Warmington Homes and continues to consult on real estate projects.  He has been successful racing offshore yachts taking Line Honors in the 1969 Trans-Atlantic Race aboard Kialoa II.  He was a podium finisher in the Congressional Cup and won the 1972 US Match Racing Championship.   In 1985 he became Chair of the California Interscholastic Sailing Association (CISA).   During his time as Chair, Roy Disney, made a substantial contribution that helped build an important training facility in Long Beach, California.  CISA hosts an annual racing clinic that attracts the top coaches and aspiring young sailors from around the country.  An impressive roster of CISA participants have gone on to race in the Olympic Games and win many World Championships.

Hogan’s contributions to the sport of sailing, both on the water and off, have had a significant impact on the lives of countless young people who have discovered their love for sailing under his leadership.
