The Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame is a collaboration between The Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame, the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston, and Sail Canada. Inductees to the Hall of Fame must be Canadian citizens, and can be inducted in any of the three categories of Sailor, Technical, or Contributor.

In these initial years, Inductees will be chosen by the Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame Management Committee, with representation from across the country. The selection process is based on criteria established in the CSHOF By-Laws. In future it is intended that the nomination process will be open to the sailing public. As per the By-Laws, any Canadian sailor who wins an Olympic or Paralympic Medal, or a World Championship in an Olympic or Paralympic class is considered an automatic Inductee. Thirteen of our fourteen 2020 Inductees meet that criterion.

"As a longstanding partner, Sail Canada is again pleased to support the Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame and the Marine Museum in this important initiative. We look forward to continuing our collaboration as we identify and celebrate individuals who are deserving of this national recognition." - Hugh McGugan, Board of Directors Chair, Sail Canada

If Covid-19 Pandemic conditions allow, the Induction Ceremony will take place at Kingston Yacht Club, 1 Maitland Street, Kingston, ON, at 2:00 - 5:00 PM Saturday, October 17th, 2020. Seating is limited to 125 people. Cost: $25 per person, includes one-year membership to the Marine Museum. Media are invited to attend. For more information and to make a reservation, please contact Doug Cowie, Museum Manager, Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston. Tel: 613-542-2261 / Email:
