Please join us for a very special evening at The Mariners' Museum, featuring Tucker Thompson and the America's Cup – the oldest trophy in international sports. This multimedia lecture event includes an overview of the Cup's storied history, a chance to relive the dramatic comeback of the 34th America's Cup regatta in 2013, an inside look at the upcoming 35th America's Cup race in Bermuda, and a chance to see the trophy up close! A veteran sailing commentator, Tucker Thompson is the official host of the 35th America's Cup and was one of the TV announcers of the 34th Cup in San Francisco. This lecture precedes an exhibition coming in May 2017 called Cat Fight, which will delve into the racing technology used in the America's Cup. A VIP reception will precede the presentation at 5 p.m. at an additional cost; see more information and ticketing details on our website at
