The Best of British Launch - April 23, 2012
EVENTS FROM THE BABC NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
Monday 2 April 2012
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
On St George’s Day 2012 the British American Business Council Northern California is proud to present the launch of two very exciting events.
It’s the start of the journey for the OAR (Olympic Atlantic Row) boat and crew who will be setting off across North America ahead of their epic challenge to row 2000 miles from Canada to England in time for the London 2012 Olympics. We’ll be smashing a bottle of champagne to launch Bojangles on behalf of the City of San Francisco – the two-person ocean rowing boat has been based here at the San Francisco Maritime Museum since her maiden voyage across the Pacific in 2009.
We will also be toasting to the opening night of BritWeek, the action-packed two-week celebration of creativity and innovation between Britain and California.
Join us in the Atrium of the CitiGroup Center at One Sansome Street for our exclusive double launch party with the British Consul General, Priya Guha, representatives from the City of San Francisco, and the crew of Bojangles, Roz Savage and Andrew Morris.
Roz and Andrew will be the first mixed gender team to row the Atlantic and the first to attempt this challenging route between Newfoundland and Bristol, completing the final stretch of the journey to London along England’s inland waterways.
It’s going to be a fantastic celebration of Britain’s close relationship with California ahead of the London Olympics. Reserve your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
