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 11th annual America and the Sea Award gala will be hosted in the Thompson Exhibition Building at Mystic Seaport on October 22, 2016.
