HELPFUL TIPS:

REVIEW the following documents to get an idea of what's involved and how you should prepare your nomination (will open in a new window):
- Sample Completed Form (webpage)
- By-Laws & Rules for Election (PDF)

CONFIRM that your Candidate meets the following criteria:
- At least 45 years old
- If deceased, at least 5 years since death, or deceased was at least 45 (whichever is sooner)
- A U.S. Citizen (a non-citizen may be considered if that person had a significant impact on the growth & development of sailing in the United States)

DECIDE which category (or categories) for which you would like your Candidate to be considered:
SAILING, TECHNICAL, OR CONTRIBUTOR - Click for more info
- You may choose one, two or all three categories

RESEARCH your Candidate so you can provide as much information to support your nomination:

- photos    - books written    - magazine articles
- positions held    - awards received     - stories & anectodes 

COLLECT the following information you will need to complete the form:
- Your contact info
- Legal name of your Candidate
- Candidate contact info (if living) - not required but helpful
- A digital photo and/or other documents from your research that can be uploaded to support your submission - not required but VERY helpful

PREPARE
a statement (as long or short as you like) telling us the reasons why you feel your Candidate should be considered for the National Sailing Hall of Fame

ALLOW enough time to complete the form in one sitting - while the form is very short and simple, there is no saving your work

SUBMIT only one instance of your nomination - this isn't a drawing, and duplicate entries by the same person only adds to the workload of our volunteers

ENJOY the process - knowing that you are contributing to American Sailing History
