Ever Wanted to Sail on an RC 44?

In the Race Notes located in the Racing Sheet in the July issue of Latitude 38, we brought you the news that the RC 44s will be having their first ever American event in Miami in December. What we didn’t know at that time is that there’s a spot onboard one of them that’ll go up for auction at the Golden Gate YC‘s Youth Sailing Foundation fundraiser at the club on July 24. The crew position will be accompanied on the block by other items like signed shirts and photos from BMW Oracle Racing’s successful campaign for the 33rd America’s Cup. The event will feature wine tasting and "gambling" to benefit the only junior program with a high school sailing program in the city of San Francisco. For details and reservations contact Leslie Iacopi at (415) 931-3980.

Imagine how you’d feel if you’d spent five years and a small fortune in pursuit of becoming the first person to solo circumnavigate the North Pole, only to be turned back midway by inflexible bureaucrats.
