The Story of Sailing

The National Sailing Hall of Fame is showcasing "Sailors & Stories"


Recognizing how important sailing is to America's history, the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame, working with US Sailing, has complied a centralized listing of award-winning American sailors, which can be found at the "Sailors & Stories" section of the website. Here you can find a list of the Rolex Yachtspersons of the Year, US Olympic and Paralympic medalists, and Herreshoff Trophy winners.

In addition to the award winners is a collection of stories about American women in sailing and yacht clubs. The NSHOF is continuously seeking additional materials to add to this section. If you have any photos, videos, recordings, or stories that you would like to share, please send it to
