US Sailing has opened nominations for the 2022 US Sailing Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year, widely acknowledged as the premiere individual sailing honors in the nation.

Established in 1961 by US Sailing and in partnership with Rolex since 1980, US Sailing's Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year award recognizes the individual male and female U.S. sailors who have demonstrated on-the-water excellence at international and national events bringing global recognition to sailing in the United States. To earn their place in the history of the sport these sailors are US citizens who are proven stewards of the sport, demonstrate sportsmanship on and off the water and achieve the highest level of success in prominent international, continental, and national championship sailing competitions in a calendar year. Previous winners include America's Cup winners, world champions, offshore record holders, and more.

Now through December 15, US Sailing is seeking nominees who have demonstrated on-the-water excellence at international and national events bringing global recognition to sailing in the United States while representing the United States.

Following the close of the nomination period, US Sailing's nominating committee, approved by the Board of Directors, will select three finalists for both the Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year Award based on the merits of the nominees. The finalists will be posted to a ballot and presented to voting groups of past award winners and sailing media journalists who will vote for the winners. Winners will be announced live on Thursday, February 2, 2023 at an evening reception as part of US Sailing's Sailing Leadership Forum in St. Pete Beach, FL.
