The 10 people who make up the 2013 class of inductees have been announced by the National Sailing Center and Hall of Fame (NSHOF) today.

Following a two-month period this spring during which sailors from all corners of the country nominated their choice for induction, a selection committee – made up of representatives from US Sailing, the sailing media, the sailing industry, community sailing, a maritime museum, a previous inductee, and the NSHOF Board – reviewed the broad spectrum of nominations.

Inductees are American citizens, 45 years of age or older, who have made significant impact on the growth and development of the sport in the U.S. in the categories of Sailing, Technical/Design and Contributor (coach, administrator, sailing media). Nominations of non-citizens were also considered if they influenced the sport in the U.S., and posthumous nominations were also accepted. The undertaking to recognize Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing is central to the mission of the NSHOF which was formed in 2005 and has completed phase one of its plan to establish a permanent facility on the historic waterfront of Annapolis, Maryland.

The 2013 class of inductees will be formally celebrated at the official Induction Ceremony at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 27, 2013. The Induction, which is open to the public, will be held at the Annapolis City Dock – site of the National Sailing Center and Hall of Fame – adjacent to the U.S. Naval Academy.

National Sailing Hall of Fame 2013 Inductees: 1984 Star Olympic Gold Medalist and three-time Star World Champion Bill Buchan (Medina, Wash.); Catalina Yachts founder Frank Butler (Woodland Hills, Calif.); seven-time International Penguin Champion Runnie Colie, Jr. (East Windsor, N.J.); seven-time Etchells World Champion Dave Curtis (Marblehead, Mass.); three-time U.S. Women’s Sailing Champion Timmy Larr (Oyster Bay, N.Y.); and 1968 Olympian and sailing author Stuart Walker (Annapolis, Md.).

National Sailing Hall of Fame 2013 Posthumous Inductees: naval architect John Gale Alden (Troy, N.Y./Marblehead, Mass.); Americas Cup icon and two-time Star World Champion Tom Blackaller, Jr. (Seattle, Wash./San Francisco, Calif.); naval architect and aviation pioneer Starling Burgess (Marblehead, Mass.); and marine photographer Morris Rosenfeld (Budapest, Hungary/New York, N.Y.).
