GovCup 2017: Join us for live coverage beginning Monday evening at 2000 PDT

NEWPORT BEACH, CA – All this week we'll be assisting with extensive coverage of the 51st annual Governor's Cup, Balboa Yacht Club's prestigious International Youth Match Racing Championship. The first show will be the Team Introductions at the Opening Dinner tomorrow (Monday) night at 2000 PDT / 2300 EDT / 0400 Tuesday in London / 1500 Tuesday in Auckland / 1300 Tuesday in Sydney.

All of the GovCup coverage – live and replays – will be carried on the BYC Facebook page @balboayachtclub and, when technically possible, also on our SI Facebook page @sailingillustratedblog. (As always, "Tuesdays with TFE" will be carried on SI's FB page.)

Below is the full schedule of this week's GovCup shows. All times are PDT. Pre-Race Shows are 30 minutes and hosted by your Ed. Post-Race Shows are approx 5 minutes, a bit longer if skippers are available to interview, hosted by Andy Rose.

Andy and I will be doing the commentary for Friday and Saturday's live racing, and Andy will emcee the Press Conferences. For those of you on the water without internet access, our race commentary will also be carried on VHF 20A.
