Our Supporters

The Capital Campaign to create The Sailing Museum, a home for our sport and space worthy of celebrating the members of the National Sailing Hall of Fame and America's Cup Hall of Fame, was made possible thanks to the generous support of our donors. It is with incredible gratitude we recognize them here. Thank you one and all for making this dream a reality!
