San Francisco is buzzing with talk about the America’s Cup, and the first events are setting sail in the Bay Area in August. But what will it all really mean for the city? Join a conversation with experts involved in planning the Cup, separate fact from fiction, learn about past races and how next year’s America’s Cup race will get underway here in the Bay Area.

We’ll kick off the evening with a quick “Cupdate” on what’s been happening in the AC World Series. What it is, who participates to the tech used to create the fastest catamarans in the world - there’s a ton to learn! This program will run 75 minutes.
