Chasing the Cup: Sailing’s Highest Prize
Hosted by America’s Cup Commentator Tucker Thompson

About the lecture:

Join award-winning TV commentator, producer, and America’s Cup host, Tucker Thompson, for a sneak peek into the next America’s Cup, sailing’s highest prize. On a nationwide speaking tour featuring New York Yacht Club American Magic, Thompson returns to The Mariners’ Museum (virtually) to share the storied history of the oldest international trophy in sports. He will give an insider’s look at the Cup’s new class of boat – AC75 – foiling monohulls which are considered the future of Cup racing. Sailing fans will hear about NYYC American Magic, with insight on what to expect in New Zealand in March 2021, when all eyes will be following the 36th America’s Cup.
