Virginia Long Sail Training Service & Support Award

The Sail Training Service and Support Award in honor of Virginia Long would honor individuals who, through their efforts, unselfishly assist and enable a sailing program or sailing instruction in a supportive role. This US Sailing perpetual award and recipient keeper plaque is donated by Starkweather & Shepley Insurance.

Recipients of this award are those whose outstanding efforts enable and support excellence and safety in sailing instruction and/or programs, but do not necessarily teach themselves. This would include, but is not limited to: administrators of sailing programs, program managers, US Sailing Regional Training Coordinators, key non-instructor volunteers, or other individuals who provide the background support to help establish, sustain, or improve sailing education programs and instruction in the United States.
