Bay Racing and the AC World Series
The Yacht Racing Association has sent out the 2012 master schedule to local clubs and associations for them to start filling in their races. Two weeks (eight weekends) are blacked out for America's Cup World Series racing: August 17-26, and September 14-23, a busy time on the Bay. "The Cityfront and Central Bay will most likely be unavailable for races during these events," notes YRA Executive Director Laura Muñoz. She needs the race coordinators to send her their events by October 14. A calendar meeting will follow.
