ADVERTISEMENT

Dominion Marine Media, the division of Dominion Enterprises that operates YachtWorld, Boat Trader and boats.com, has chosen the finalists for its 2013 YachtWorld Heroes award. The winner will be announced at the Miami International Boat Show this month.



Now in its third year, the YachtWorld Heroes initiative recognizes individuals and their organizations who have leveraged their love and respect for boating in our oceans, rivers, lakes and streams into a higher consciousness.

The five 2013 YachtWorld Heroes finalists are:



Joel Aberbach of Miami, a volunteer with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Sea Partners and America’s Waterway Watch. He has volunteered 25,000 hours over 40 years to educate the public about protecting and preserving our marine environment.



Betsy Alison of Newport, the paralympic coach for the U.S. sailing team. She was a 2011 U.S. Sailing Hall of Fame inductee and has dedicated her life to disabled sailing.



Dieter Paulmann of Germany, founder of Okeanos Foundation of the Sea and Pacific Voyagers. He and his crew sailed 20,000 miles across the Pacific with their fleet of seven oceangoing sailing canoes to raise awareness of contemporary threats to the sea.



David Rockefeller Jr. of Newport, founder of SailorsForTheSea.org, which educates and encourages the boating community in the worldwide protection of the oceans.



Jeanne Socrates of the UK, a sailor, who completed a single-handed, non-stop circumnavigation mid-2013 at the age of 70.
