Each year US Sailing presents up to five awards to recognize outstanding individuals, classes, clubs and fleets in one-design sailing. The awards -- Service, Leadership, Club, Regatta, and Creativity -- highlight role models of creative leadership in one-design sailing.
Did your club run an outstanding regatta this year? Is there an exceptional person at your club who was responsible for making your fleet grow? Anyone can nominate a club, fleet, regatta or one-design spark plug for a US Sailing One-Design Award. US SAILING wants to hear about it - one superbly written nomination per nominee is all that is needed.
