Great Weather for the 47th Governor’s Cup

Practice day for the Gov Cup teams brought 8 to10 knots of wind, low 70’s temperature and a casual afternoon. All the teams checked in, got to renew friendships and make new ones. Many of the racers had been here before and/or competed against each other in a variety of events throughout the world. Some of the parents have arrived as well, including John Eastman and Richard Novak from Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club.

They mentioned that the young sailors at their club look forward to the Gov Cup, competing during the year to be selected to represent RPNYC. Coaches were able to go out with the teams today to help them get acquainted with the Gov Cup 21, if they were new to the boat.

Spinnaker colors were chosen for the week. The teams will have different boats each day during the week but will always be flying the same spinnakers when racing down wind. Each day, the list of boat numbers will be available to help identify the teams in the photos that will be posted on the web site. The leader board will be updated constantly as well. Checkout the web site at balboayachtclub.com for photos, links, stories, Tweets and Facebook.
 

The 2013 Governor’s Cup is proud to announce the addition of several new sponsors as well as the continued support of Sterling BMW as our Title sponsor. CR&R a leading Southern California Waste Management company returns as well and is joined by HOM Sotheby's International Realty and Vanetik International providing significant financial support.

We are pleased to have David and Deborah Lake and Faucet Depot returning as valued TEAM sponsors and this year they are joined by a host of new companies including Skyline Resources, Pretend City Children’s Museum, The Smith Group, Island Marine Fuel, Barney and Barney and The Hartford insurance agencies.Support also comes from the generous people at Armite, DMI, California Sunset Escrow, Law offices of Lemkin, Barnes & Row, Preferred Dental Care and Trenton Rhodes.

Levendi Winery, Ullman Sails, the OC Register, Vineyard Vines and The Hill Family Corporation are providing what they do best, wonderful products and services to help the Governor’s Cup maintain its fleet of boats, wonderful wine for the event, shirts for the participants and accessories for the competitors and unparalleled advertising.
