GovCup: Championship kicks-off today; live webcasts all week, starting with tonight's traditional 'Introduction of Teams' at 2000 PDT

Monday, July 16, 2018


NEWPORT BEACH, CA (#1067) – The 52nd Annual Governor's Cup, Balboa Yacht Club's prestigious international youth match racing championship presented by Farmers & Merchants Bank, kicks off today with practice sailing for the twelve teams from five countries (AUS, DEN, GBR, NZL and USA). Tonight is the traditional opening dinner and Introduction of Teams emceed by GovCup guru Andy Rose. The field for this year's GovCup is widely regarded as the toughest in the event's history, so the friendly banter – more of a roast actually – between Mr Rose and the teams as they are introduced should be more fun than ever.
