The Board of Directors of the National Sailing Hall of Fame (NSHOF) today announced that it will annually present a new Lifetime Achievement Award starting in 2014. Since 2011 the NSHOF has recognized American sailors, 45 years of age and older, for their impact on the growth and development of the sport in a variety of categories.
The addition of the new category allows recognition of a person who, over their lifetime, has made contributions to and/or had success in the sport while also becoming successful and achieving stature in a non-sailing career. The award recipient will become member of the National Sailing Hall of Fame, and will join the 2014 class of Inductees who will be announced at the end of this month.
