Scuttlebutt Sailing News: "The venue search for the 35th America’s Cup has narrowed the finalists to Bermuda, Chicago and San Diego. The leader among the venues appears to be San Diego, which has both consistent weather and event experience. The plan is for the racing to be held inside San Diego Bay. “San Diego clicks a lot of boxes,” remarked defense CEO Russell Coutts. “The boats might be maneuvering every minute and a half. It would be a highly technical course in the AC 62 and would lay out quite well for spectators and sponsor fulfillment.”..."

The National Class A Scow Association puts on the yacht race, which is in its ninth year, according to Tim Browne, a spokesman for the event. He expects to see around 25 teams, mostly from Minnesota and Wisconsin, he said. A-Scow boats are primarily found in the Midwest because of their historical roots, and because they’re best suited for protected waterways, such as lakes, he said. The regatta moves around the region each year. It was last held on Lake Minnetonka in 2007. Browne said it’s a fitting spot given that the Minnetonka Yacht Club, the host, has a history that goes back 132 years in Deephaven and a reputation for producing top-notch sailors, including many who have won prestigious titles around the world...."
