The Tall Ships America Sail Training Awards recognize the achievements and contributions of individuals and programs involved in the work and the community of sail training and tall ships. Each year we recognize strong leadership, extra effort, significant impact, and steadfast commitment to our collective work. Receiving a Tall Ships America Award is a high honor and celebration of the people dedicated to the principle that experience under sail strengthens character through authentic challenge. You can nominate someone else or yourself/your organization, but each submission must include a nomination letter identifying the nominee and detailing why they are an appropriate recipient of a Sail Training Award. Letters of support for your nomination are helpful in selecting award winners but are not mandatory. The 2023 awards will be handed out at the 2024 Annual Conference on Sail Training and Tall Ships.
