One Month Left to Nominate for the Northwest Marine Championship Awards

Northwest Yachting magazine is proud to be hosting the first annual Northwest Marine Champion Awards. We’re already receiving a boatload of inspiring nominations from you, our readers, for a variety of categories to give the hardworking the recognition they very much deserve. You have a little under a month left to nominate the outstanding individuals in your life, so what are you waiting for?

We have 14 categories to cover all nautical waypoints and each are described in detail in November’s issue of Northwest Yachting, but for your convenience, keep reading for a quick and dirty rundown of each category.

They include:

Outstanding New Yacht Brokerage designed to recognize a brokerage established in the last two years that represents outstanding excellence

Promising New Yacht Broker for the latest and greatest up and coming talent

Exemplary Marina Manager for the dedicated behind-the-scenes superstar that facilitates the best possible boating experience for their tenants

Terrific Boatyard Employee who’s dedication to the industry shines bright for all to see; Active Yacht Club for the club that never sleeps, settling for nothing but the best for its members

Excellence in Industry Education for those who put forth tireless work for the benefit of their students or workforce

Outstanding Environmental Leadership for the local champion with our waterway’s health as a first priority

Adventurous Soul for the seafarer who lives to explore every nook and cranny of the Pacific Northwest

Weekend Warrior for the person who is foreign to the idea of winterizing and is on the water every waking moment that fits in their schedule

Exemplary Racing Program for the program that’s the full package: fun, friendly, fierce, and fantastic all at the same time

Beloved Chief Cook/Mixologist
for the friend who regularly takes over the galley with their tasty concoctions

Consummate Mentor for the on-water enthusiast who shares their passion for the sport with boaters everywhere

Supreme Boat Name for the punny, strange, and delightful boat names that make us chuckle

Furry First Mate for the beloved pet that knows a life on water better than land.

It’s vital that every nomination includes a detailed story for us to truly understand and be inspired by the worthy individual. Our Northwest Yachting team will review each nomination and select winners based upon the strength of their case. Objectivity and fairness are our goals, but who are we to guarantee such ambitions?

Set your winner-take-all mentality aside and see these awards merely as a celebration to recognize the outstanding members of our nautical community. We will be announcing winners in our January issue just in time for the Seattle Boat Show, which means you have a little less than a month to submit your inspirational nominations for review. Rumor has it that a party could be in the works. Guess you’ll have to nominate to find out!
