John Sangmeister’s USSHOF Nomination Letter of Gino Morelli and Pete Melvin

To the USSHOF Nominating Committee:

It’s a great pleasure to nominate Gino Morrelli and Pete Melvin, to the US National Sailing Hall of Fame.


The 2010 and 2013 America’s Cups transformed the future of the America’s Cup and the way we sail. The Morrelli & Melvin design firm served on the design team of the 2010 winner USA-17 and in 2011 Morrelli & Melvin was commissioned to draft the design rules for the AC 72s raced in the 2013 America’s Cup.

Morrelli & Melvin served on the design team of Emirates Team New Zealand’s (ETNZ) 2013 challenger. ETNZ were the first to “Fly” and it was the Morrelli & Melvin influence that brought about this remarkable transformation to sailing and the America’s Cup. More recently the Morrelli & Melvin designed NACRA 17 was selected as the multi-hull division for the 2016 Olympics and the Morrelli & Melvin designed NACRA 15 was chosen as the World Sailing Youth World division for multi-hulls.
