O’pen Bics Wow Crowds

While yesterday’s Louis Vuitton racing might not have been all that thrilling, there was some racing in front of the AC grandstands on Marina Green that was fast and furious when about 30 sailors aged 9-15 took to the water to race O’pen Bics on the ‘treacherous’ America’s Cup course. The kids had a blast racing in the O’pen Bic High-Wind Slalom as part of the AC OPEN, a series of independently organized small-boat events.

Several more such events are scheduled for the AC OPEN, including kites, windsurfers, F-18s, SUPs and more. Check out the full schedule for more details.

Local sailing industry nonprofit also arranged to have some small boats on display at the AC Park and AC Village, giving thousands of visitors a chance to see boats they could sail and afford. It’s a great addition to the event and a great opportunity for local sailing.
