On Friday, June 8th we will honor the 2023 inductees into the Delaware Maritime Hall of Fame.  The dinner will be held in the Lewes Room of the Irish Eyes Restaurant located on the Lewes Canalfront overlooking the Lightship Overfalls (LV-118) and the Delaware Maritime Hall of Fame Monument.

This is a ticketed event and is now sold out.

This year’s inductees are:

  • Captain Sharon Dounce, for her more than 20 years of service as a key member of the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation;
  • Mr. Charles Fithian, for his extensive maritime archeological work, especially the successful retrieval and preservation of the HMS DeBraak; 
  • Ms. Tracy Mulveny for her efforts to move the Overfalls Foundation to a new level of activity, to look beyond the saving of the lightship with an emphasis on ongoing preservation;
  • Mr. Ronal Smith, for his leadership role in fisheries management in the Delaware Bay and regionally, as well as for his work in youth and adult marine education;
  • And Rear Admiral Samuel F. DuPont for his long service in the U.S. Navy, particularly during the Mexican-American and Civil Wars, as well as many other significant contributions.

Please be sure to visit the Lightship Overfalls and the Delaware Maritime Hall of Fame granite marker where you can see the inscriptions with all the Hall of Fame members.
