SHELTER ISLAND YACHT CLUB BECOMES NSHOF FOUNDING MEMBER

From the Commodore:

"The Shelter Island Yacht Club is very proud and excited to become a Founding Member of the National Sailing Hall of Fame. We wholeheartedly support the NSHOF's efforts to preserve America’s Corinthian traditions of yachting; to uphold the spirit of sailing; and to honor those who have made outstanding contributions to the sailing world. The NSHOF’s mission is our mission. Becoming a Founding Member of the NSHOF is a perfect way for us to celebrate our 125th year."
