2023 America’s Cup Hall of Fame Induction

Bill Lynn, President of the Herreshoff Marine Museum and the America’s Cup Hall of Fame, and Steve Tsuchiya, America’s Cup Hall of Fame Selection Committee Chair, invite you to join them for the 2023 America’s Cup Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner in the iconic Model Room at the New York Yacht Club on Friday, October 17th at 1800.

Honoring John “JB” Barnitt, Iain Murray & Hope Goddard Iselin

“The members of this year’s class hail from very different backgrounds but they all raced in the America’s Cup and contributed to the Cup via another discipline, including photography, boat-building, and regatta management” said America’s Cup Hall of Fame Selection Committee Chair Steve Tsuchiya. “We’re thrilled to welcome this multi-talented group to the Hall of Fame!”

The America’s Cup Hall of Fame has inducted nearly a hundred individuals since its founding in 1992. Candidates eligible for consideration include members of the crew, designers, builders, syndicate leaders, supporters, chroniclers, and other individuals of merit. Each nominee is judged on the basis of outstanding ability, international recognition, character, performance, and contributions to the sport. The members of the Selection Committee are intimate with the history and traditions of America’s Cup and are committed to the integrity of the Hall of Fame.

According to America’s Cup Hall of Fame President & Executive Director Bill Lynn, “The America’s Cup is known for its constant innovation, and this group of inductees is truly emblematic of that dynamic. JB and Iain have played important roles in the evolution of the Cup to multihulls and now foiling monohulls, while Ms. Iselin was a key member of the afterguard on RELIANCE, the biggest and possibly most innovative boat to ever sail in the Cup. I want to thank the Selection Committee for their hard work and for giving us three excellent new members of the Hall of Fame.”

Tickets to the event are $350 and can be purchased at herreshoff.org/achofic or email info@herreshoff.org with questions.
