Vote for a Maritime Hero

By December 12, 2012

Follow me on:

The Old Pulteney Maritime Heroes Award sponsored by US Sailing and Old Pulteney is now being voted on. Go to http://www.maritimeheroes.com to cast your vote. The six finalists, nominated by the sailing community as a whole, include sailing program organizers who have brought sailing to disadvantaged youth, disabled individuals, and the African American community as well a sailor educating others about the importance of maintaining clean sailing environments. Cast your vote to honor someone who has contributed not only to sailing but to the betterment of our world.

Boy, that’s a tough choice. They all sound like heros. It came down to pure numbers.

dear Tom, I like what YOU are doing for the sailing community . especially how you spread and publish your knowledge. through your texts there is visible how you love to sail and that you have much more than many others a profound knowledge of seamanship. and…i believe that you know that it is not important to be the fastest or the number one in any competition but that patience, companionship and semanship is more worth.
i think, too, there are many other unnamed real heros among sailors.
happy sailing, kind regards
