America and the Sea Award

The America and the Sea Award recognizes an individual or organization whose contributions to the history, arts, business or sciences of the sea best exemplify the American spirit and character. Presented annually by Mystic Seaport, the Award honors and celebrates those who embrace the scholarship, exploration, adventure, aesthetics, competition, and freedom that the sea inspires.

The 9th annual America and the Sea Award Gala will be hosted November 5, 2014. This black-tie affair is the premier fund-raising event for the Museum and is by invitation only.
