Adams Cup Reunion in May
Published on March 29th, 2017
The National Sailing Hall of Fame will host an Adams Cup Sailing reunion on May 19-21 in Annapolis, MD. The weekend event is for female sailors – mothers, daughters, granddaughters – to share sailing stories, go sailing, celebrate women in sailing and engage the next generation.
If you are a past Adams Cup participant (preliminaries and finals), you are invited to participate in this event sponsored by Gowrie Group.
We need your help in finding past Adams Cup-ers!
If you know any female sailors who participated in the Adams Cup, please share this report or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas/names and we will try to track them down to invite them to attend.
