The Single-Handed Sailors' Hall of Fame (SHSHoF) was established at The Museum of Yachting in Newport, Rhode Island in 1985 to recognize the achievements of outstanding solo sailors throughout the world. The first inductees included such pioneers as Joshua Slocum, Sir Francis Chichester and Marin Marie. In recent years contemporary sailors such as Philippe Jeantot, Isabelle Autissier and Ellen MacArthur have been inducted.
Periodically, two independent Nominating and Selection Committees convene to elect the next class of Inductees. These Committees are comprised of authorities in the sport of Single-Handed Sailing including sports journalists and other Hall of Fame Members.
