Nominations close on Tuesday 27 February for the SAILING Mag Blog Sailor of the Month.
This is YOUR opportunity to nominate your favourite sailor – or even hardworking crew.
Calvin Gibbs (pictured) was Sailor of the Month for February.
There have been several noteworthy performances in recent weeks, so give this some thought and nominate the person you think deserves this award. But DO IT Now please.
SEND YOUR NOMINATION TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
Who can make nominations? Anyone (individuals, clubs, class associations or administrators) may submit nominations.
What are the criteria? The award is strictly for ‘sailing excellence’ or in exceptional circumstances, for ‘dedication to the sport’.
What is the procedure? All nominations must be fully motivated in writing, and must be accompanied by a head-and-shoulders picture of the candidate, plus an action sailing pic aboard his/her boat. Motivations must include current performances, a brief CV of the nominee, and other pertinent, personal background information (age, school, employment, home town etc) so that an interesting editorial on the winner may be written.
The identity of the person making the nomination is NOT given to the panel of judges – so this is kept completely confidential and is known to The Editor ONLY.
