America's Cup: Wind, Waves, and a Need for Speed (free short presentation)

Come out to Sausalito and join some members of the North Bay Sailing Meetup Group for this free presentation on America's Cup, and learn what this exciting event is all about.

In 1851, a British royal yacht race created a sensation that leads us to today and the America’s Cup Race featuring the world’s best sailors, the fastest sailboats every invented, and the most coveted trophy in competitive sailing sports.

This year the race will take place in the San Francisco Bay Estuary.  Check out the racecourse location at the Bay Model. See some of the challenges that the boats will encounter and learn some fascinating history.
