  • The National Sailing Hall of Fame (NSHOF) is a nonprofit educational organization that promotes sailing and racing by recognizing individuals who have contributed to the sport, highlighting sailing's contribution to the American culture; and demonstrating its value as a hands-on tool for teaching math and science. The organization was established in 2005. NSHOF was originally housed in the Captain Burtis House, located on the City Dock in Annapolis, Maryland. Visitors to the site could participate in on-the-water experiences and learn about sailing history, art and lore. On 1 May 2019, it was announced that the NSHOF would move from Annapolis to Newport, Rhode Island. That same year, the NSHOF purchased the Armory Building in Newport, an historic building with connections to the America's Cup race. The space is being developed into exhibit space, in collaboration with the Herreshoff Museum and the America's Cup Hall of Fame. The new museum is scheduled to open in 2022, and will be called the Sailing Museum. Gus Carlson became president of the board of directors in 2019, succeeding Gary Jobson. Effective 15 April 2019, Heather Ruhsam became the organization's executive director, where she also serves as the executive director of the upcoming Sailing Museum. The National Sailing Hall of Fame began inducting honorees in 2011. As of June 2020, 88 individuals have been elected to the Hall of Fame. (en)
