Word just came down from from on high that the America’s Cup will be making a visit to Strictly Sail Pacific on Thursday, April 15. No other details were available when we posted this so check out Strictly Sail’s website for details.
UPDATE: "We have designated Thursday as ‘America’s Cup Day at Strictly Sail’ in honor of the BMW Oracle Racing Team’s victory," said SSP Show Manager Jonathan Banks in the official press release. Though the exact location of the Cup within the show is unclear, the Cup will be on display from noon-6 p.m., with a BMW Oracle Racing Team presentation to follow from 6-7 p.m. The discussion is free to showgoers, and will include Q&A with Brad Webb, Ian Burns and Tom Ehman.
This is quite a coup for the show, and we hope those who want to see the next America’s Cup sailed on San Francisco Bay will attend to show their support!
