Evening Lecture Series: Chasing the Cup with America’s Cup host Tucker Thompson

Friday, November 20, 2020, 2:00 AM - 3:00 AM

Join award-winning TV commentator, producer, and America’s Cup host, Tucker Thompson, for an online 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 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 – considered to be the future of Cup racing. Sailors and fans of the Museum's Speed and Innovation gallery will hear about NYYC American Magic, and have insight on what to expect in New Zealand in March 2021 when all eyes will be following the 36th America’s Cup.

The America’s Cup Yacht Tour is sponsored in part by The Moorings®, Quantum Sails, Regatta Craft Mixers, and SeaDek.
