You can track the three Bermuda-bound Oakcliff team at this page
. Look for Temptation Oakcliff, Oakcliff Farr 47 and Jeffery MacFarlane who is in the short- handed division. The race starts tomorrow afternoon.
Also tomorrow, 12 of the top American youth teams will begin match racing in the Rose Cup. Results
will be posted as they are available. Oakcliff will be posting play by play reports on Twitter and Facebook. Finally Chris Love and his driver, Acorn Cat Feder will be filming all of the action and coverage will be available nightly. Thank you to Gill for their support.
The Volvo Ocean Racing Team Alvemedica will be blasting through the Rose Cup fleet and sailing into Oyster Bay on Saturday. This one is not a virtual event. You will want to be here as they pull up to the dock at OBMC. You can get an up close personal view of the boat and meet the team including Mark Towill and Charlie Enright tour of the boat. Their time is limited to 3:00-6:00.
