US Sailing honors the best of the best every fall at the One Design Symposium. If there is anyone who has a lot to be thankful for or any organization who has pride in its accomplishments, it's US. So take a few minutes this week and think of the best event of the year in our area, the spark plug from your fleet, a creative force behind your fleet. The editor can think of no other group of individuals who make sailing as competitive, pleasureable or outstanding as the members of the ILYA.

Scuttlebutt is also honoring sailors.
Scuttlebutt is launching the SAILING FAMILY OF THE YEAR award.The rules on who qualifies are loose. Your family may participate together or separately. Your family might be into competing, cruising, or supporting the sport in some capacity. Maybe not all of your family is into sailing, but some are. If you are part of a family, and you have family members that participate in the sport, than you are a qualified entrant for the SFOTY award.
The winning family will be outfitted in team gear courtesy of Atlantis WeatherGear and Camet International, along with receiving international recognition and commemorative trophies. Entry deadline is November 15, 2010. Enter here: http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/news/10/SFOTY/
