NEWPORT, RI – One of the highlights of last year's National Sailing Hall of Fame induction weekend in San Francisco hosted by St Francis YC was the Youth Panel emceed by Paul Cayard and featuring a number of those being formally inducted the following day. A large turnout of local junior sailors obviously enjoyed the event, as did your Ed. and several dozen seniors.
This year's NSHOF induction ceremony is this coming weekend in Newport, RI hosted at NYYC's Harbor Court. A Youth Panel has been organized again, and will take place Saturday from 10-11 emceed by Jerry Kirby with a great lineup of speakers. There is no charge, and all junior sailors and their parents are welcome irrespective of any yacht club affiliation. Sign up below, and congrats to our longtime friend Suzy Leech for organizing what no doubt will be an interesting and inspiring event.
