HELPFUL TIPS

- Sample Completed Form (webpage)

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

- You may choose one, two or all three categories

COLLECT the following information you will need to complete the form:
- Your contact info
- Legal name of your Candidate
- Candidate contact info (or if deceased, next of kin) - not required but helpful
- A digital photo and/or other documents 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 - one for each category for which you are submitting (IMPORTANT: Nominations without any supporting statement or reasons why the Candidate merits induction will likely not be considered).

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
