AC Meetings This Week

The adoption of the America’s Cup 34 environmental impact report is up for debate this week, and the America’s Cup Event Authority needs all the help it can get.

The governmental approval process for the 34th America’s Cup is coming to a close, and one of the final steps will be a pair of meetings later this week that will decide whether the environmental impact report will be adopted by the City. Given the disappointing attendance for the America’s Cup World Series San Diego — although attended by many representatives of the City family — any support you can give the event will be extremely helpful.

The first of those will be the meeting for the Planning Comission on Thursday at 5 p.m. in City Hall room 400. The second is for the Port Commission on Friday at 10:15 a.m. at City Hall in room 250. Although there’s no need to do so, you can RSVP to be advised of any changes in venue and/or time. If you can’t make the meeting, but would still like to show your support, please do so via email, and urge the planning commission to certify the report. Emails of support can be sent to Planning Commission Secretary Linda Avery, and directly to commisioners Christina Olague, Ron Miguel, Michael J. Antonini, Gwyneth Borden, Kathrin Moore, Hisashi Sugaya, and Rodney Fong.

Questions, or requests for more information on how you can be of help to America’s Cup 34 will be fielded by the Event Authority’s Ariel Ungerleider or Stephanie Martin.

For many sailors, one of the highlights of sailing south off the west coast of Baja is fishing in its abundant waters.
You don’t have to be an entrant in next summer’s Singlehanded TransPac to attend the seminars offered by the Singlehanded Sailing Society in the months preceeding the 2,120-mile race from San Francisco Bay to Kauai.
