Jersey Shore's Barnegat Bay Sailing Hall of Fame

Jersey Shore's Barnegat Bay Sailing Hall of Fame

Champion sailors are among the veteran boaters being inducted into the Barnegat Bay Sailing Hall of Fame...and you thought the Hall of Fame was just for football and baseball players!

Hall of Fame organizers say their mission is to promote "the area's maritime heritage by recognizing individuals whose accomplishments on the water and/or on the shore have significantly enhanced Barnegat Bay's maritime character and strengthened its status as a maritime center.

One such man is Jonathan Wright, a true sailing champion.  He was a member of the Corinthian Yacht Club in Cape May.  Wright was named Yachting Magazine Crewmember of the Year in 1989.  He crewed on five America's Cup teams, winning 3 and skippered boats to first place finish in the 1989 Volvo Regatta. Wright has also captained or crewed winners in numerous events including the Newport-Bermuda Race, the San Francisco Big Boat Series and the Congressional Cup.

Another champion was Allan Terhune of Beachwood who won eight national championships from 1989 to 2009 and was on the only Barnegat Bay Yachting Association Team to win the Junior National Championship.  He has many top finishes in Lightning and Flying Scot classes and was the keelboat sailing director at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis 2005 to 2007.

Barnegat Bay has a strong sailing and maritime heritage which has spanned more than 400 years, and continues to this day. The Bay has produced numerous avid and successful sailors, at all levels, including the Olympics. Today there are many thriving yacht clubs on the Bay that continue to produce sailors of all ages, host national and international regattas, and proudly carry on this heritage.

Want to take advantage of the sailing in Barnegat Bay? Here is a lovely waterfront home on South Drive in Brick with a wide lagoon and easy access to the Bay and entire Jersey Shore.  This lagoon-lot house has great views from every window, 1 mile to Bayhead Beach.
