Nominations are about to close for the first award of 202, so if you would like to make a nomination, now’s the time to do it.
We have up-and-coming youngsters trying to make their mark in the sport; we have those who have passed the youth ranks and are setting their sights higher and on greater things in the sport. They all need recognition of their achievements in as many ways as possible. Just one way is through SAILING Mag Blog ‘Sailor of the Month’ award. It is a sought-after award and one which sits very well on a CV.
The nomination process is made as simple as possible to facilitate participation. To ensure that bureaucracy will not prevent nominations being made, there is absolutely NO requirement for a Club or Class Association to endorse a nomination. ANYONE can submit a nomination.
Now in its 20th year, the Roll of Honour reads Like a Who’s Who of sailing in South Africa.
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 preferably be accompanied by a pic of the candidate / an action sailing pic aboard his/her boat. Motivations should include current performances, a brief CV of the nominee, and other pertinent, personal background information so that an interesting editorial on the winner may be written.
Submissions should preferably be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Monthly winners are featured monthly, with the overall ‘Sailor of the Year’ receiving a substantial cash prize thanks to Raymarine and MDM Marine Services.
