Every major sports organization has their own historic, iconic award to properly recognize excellence. College football recognizes the most outstanding player of the year with the Heisman Trophy. Major League Baseball honors their best pitchers of the season with the Cy Young Award. The National Hockey League celebrates their Most Valuable Player with the Hart Trophy. US Sailing has the Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year, widely acknowledged as the foremost individual sailing honors in the nation. US Sailing is now accepting nominations for these prestigious awards through December 2018. Submit your nomination(s) today at rolex.ussailing.org.
Earlier this month, the US Sailing Team gathered at the U.S. Olympic Training Center (USOTC) to address the off the water components of their training and to complete final planning for the year ahead. The athletes conducted fitness testing, learned from physicians, set objectives for 2019 and beyond, and found inspiration from Olympians.
The Corpus Christi Yacht Club, host of the 2018 Youth Sailing World Championships in July, was honored with World Sailing’s 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award at the World Sailing Annual Conference Tuesday, October 30 in Sarasota, Fla. The award celebrates the effective execution or ongoing delivery of high-impact, highly-replicable sustainability initiatives. Driven by the dedication of the CCYC volunteer Green Team, the Youth Worlds was the first World Sailing Championship with a focus on ocean conservation and sustainability.
