Welcoming Wolfgang home – drop by the Sailing Team’s fundraiser!
If you love sailing, this is going to be a great evening…and it benefits the high school team! Wolfgang Chamberlain is an island boy who as a child took sailing lessons on Percich Pond. Later he taught sailing lessons on the pond, as well as coached our high school sailing team.
His sailing career has taken him abroad to race for New Zealand, Italy and Spain. The most recent chapter in his sailing career is as the Head of the Shore Team for the Oracle’s Catamaran in the 2013 America’s Cup in San Francisco. Here’s more from Abbie & Mary Jane:
Please join the San Juan Island Sailing Foundation and Friday Harbor’s own Wolfgang Chamberlain for dinner and an exciting multimedia presentation on the Oracle Team’s America’s Cup racing boats.
Wolfgang is is now working as the Head of the Shore Team for Oracle’s catamaran in the 2013 America’s Cup to be held in San Francisco.
Before dinner his presentation features the building of the winning team boat “Dogzilla.”
A second presentation after dinner will cover the building of the current high tech wing sail catamaran, with speeds in excess of 30 knots. Included in the evening is an auction and a raffle of Oracle Team Gear.
This memorable evening is a benefit for the San Juan Island High School Sailing Team and will be held on Saturday, May 26 at the San Juan Island Yacht Club from 6 to 9 pm.
