America’s Cup unveils plans for waterfront village, park | Paul Gackle | Development | San Francisco Examiner: " . . . After racing concludes Sept. 21, the Port of San Francisco, which owns and constructed the new building, will transform it into a cruise ship terminal. America’s Cup Park will sit at the race’s finish line and give spectators who want to follow every twist and turn closely a chance to watch the competition on the jumbo screen with live commentary over the loud speakers. But fans who want to be closer to the action can go down to America’s Cup Village at Marina Green and sit in the bleachers that will be set up right along the racecourse. America’s Cup Park also will give fans a rare opportunity to interact with the competitors as they come on and off the water and participate in daily Q&A events with the public. “This is the place where you can really get up close and meet the athletes,” Spaulding said."

Vermont Farmer Building Sailboat To Transport Produce To NYC: Gothamist: "The 39 foot sailboat—named Ceres after the Roman goddess of agriculture and grain crops—is currently being built by an all volunteer crew of students and members of the community. When completed, the boat would be capable of transporting 12 tons of Vermont-produced goods down the river without using any gasoline. If they're able to get the funding, the Vermont Sail Freight Project would launch in Lake Champlain in July and would sail Ceres on her maiden voyage in September. This harkening back to older shipping methods was also implemented by Williamsburgs's Mast Brothers chocolate, who transported cocoa beans by schooner in 2011, the first time such a method had been used in NYC since 1939."
