Sail Training International: Call for Nominations

Posted by Tall Ships America on October 4, 2011

Sail Training International is seeking nominations. If you have a favorite program, sail trainer or volunteer that you would like to see recognized please take the time to submit your nomination to Sail Training International. Deadline for submissions is October 14th at midnight.

Six awards in three categories will be presented at Sail Training International’s annual conference taking place in Toulon, France (18 – 20 November) where the organization will pay tribute to those who have made an exceptional difference in the development of young people.

Paul Bishop, Head of Race Directorate, comments: “We see so many great sail trainers, volunteers and sail training organizations during the races who really do deserve to be recognised for their hard work and effort which has such a positive influence on the lives of the young people they encounter throughout the year. Please give these organizations and people the recognition they deserve and send your nominations in today!”

Make sure your opinion counts by nominating who you think should win the following awards:

  1. Sail Training Operator of the Year – Two awards; one for large and one for small vessels. National Sail Training Organizations (NSTO), sail training vessel operators and individuals are eligible to nominate in these categories.
  2. Sail Trainer of the Year – Two awards; one for a professional sail trainer older than 25 and the other to a sail trainer aged 25 or younger. Sail training operators/organisations are eligible to nominate in these categories.
  3. Sail Training Volunteer of the Year – Two awards; one for a volunteer older than 25 and the other to a volunteer aged 25 or younger. Sail training operators/organisations are eligible to nominate in these categories.

Download and complete the nomination form (PDF) and email it to francoise@sailtraininginternational.org with ‘Annual Awards’ in the subject line by Friday 14th October 2011.

Tall Ships America will be announcing our own call for nominations in November for awards given at our annual conference in January.
