 National Sailing Hall of Fame  Annapolis USA
Ten years ago, the journalist (and future US Sailing President) Gary Jobson had - during a panel discussion in Annapolis with Paul Cayard and Dennis Conner - the idea to have a physical home bearing the history of sailing's greatest moments. The desire for such a home was the easy part; finding the best place to hang a shingle, however, was a challenge. There are many cities and towns worthy of the National Sailing Hall of Fame, but Annapolis, Md., emerged for many reasons. After six years of working on the concept, the National Sailing Hall of Fame board received the gift it needed from then Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich, who offered a prime waterfront location in Historic Annapolis. From the Jobson Report May 2009.
