Sail America has now made available an agenda for the 12th International Sailing Summit (ISS) to its website. The summit will take place August 18-20, 2013, at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco, CA, and is organized by Sail America.
The ISS will begin with an afternoon of America's Cup race viewing and an opening evening reception. A day and a half of educational seminars and networking opportunities will follow. Topics include the state of the industry, next generation sailors, and the future of sailing. Speakers include Frank Savage from Savage Holdings LLC, Efrem 'Skip' Zimbalist III from Active Media Interest, Iain Murray and Stan Honey from America's Cup Race Management, and the 2012 Rolex Yachtsman of the year, Johnny Heineken.
'We've put together a great program with the industry's top names and leaders speaking,' ISS Chair and Founder, Alistair Murray, says. 'The program and location near the America's Cup home base in the heart of San Francisco will make this a memorable ISS.'
