If you’ve been following the tumultuous politics of the next America’s Cup engagement, you wouldn’t be alone in your curiosity about its future. Next week a fortunate few may get an opportunity to peek behind the curtain and learn more about what’s in store for the event from none other than the winners of the 32nd America’s Cup, Ernesto Berterelli and Ed Baird.

The dynamic duo plan to be in town next Friday for a meeting at the St. Francis Yacht Club. Details are still sketchy but St. Francis hopes to invite club members and guests to a short talk from the America’s Cup winners. Before traveling West they apparently will also make a stop at the New York YC, though the goal of the brief tour remains a mystery. Suffice it to say that between actual bouts of sailing there seems to be ample reason for the Cup ‘movers and shakers’ to keep lines of communication open and lots of effort to keep the America’s Cup train on its tracks. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available. We’re curious to find out if Larry Ellison will run up from Redwood Shores to be in the audience.
