Posted on

Gary Jobson, ESPN commentator and former America’s Cup crew member, will be presenting a talk about major upcoming sailing events, as well as an update on the America’s Cup, at the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina at 10 a.m. Sept. 19.

Entry is free to attendees of the Newport International Boat Show.

“We are thrilled to have such a sailing celebrity at our show,” said show director Nancy Piffard, in a statement.

The Inaugural New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup, which Jobson is in town to film for an ESPN Special, is taking place the weekend of the Newport Boat Show and will feature 20 of the world’s top yacht clubs racing in matched NYYC Swan 42s.

Also to be discussed will be the 12 Metre World Championships being held in Newport from Sept. 22-27 as part of the 12 Metre Class 50th Anniversary that has included regattas in Newport, Edgartown, Nantucket and New York City.

Finally, Jobson will provide an update on the next America’s Cup race that has been under intense competition in the courts and has been in a constant state of flux.

Doors will open at 9:45 a.m. with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. A ticket to the boat show, or a bracelet used for entry on Thursday or Friday, is all that’s needed for entry to this free event.

Advance tickets are available on-line.
