The recently selected Governor’s Cup teams have been notified that their applications have been accepted for Balboa Yacht Club’s 46th annual Governor’s Cup International Junior Match Racing Championship which will take place July 18 to 22, 2012.

They will be joined by the winners of the Rose Cup, a national youth match racing event to be held at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club (Florida) on June 20-24 as well as the South American youth match race champion and some of the best young match racing talent from Sweden, Australia, New Zealand and the US.

The racing will be held in the afternoons from Wednesday through Sunday in the ocean near the Balboa Pier in Newport Beach, California. The round robin format for the event provides spectators with continuous competition as each race features only two boats with each team racing against every other team at least once.

The talented racers will demonstrate a variety of tactics and skills as they race around buoys. It is especially exciting to watch when they round the weather mark, with colorful spinnakers flying.

Selected Teams

ORGANIZATION COUNTRY
Balboa Yacht Club - Corona del Mar, CA
Cruising Yacht Club of Australia - Australia
Göteborg Kungliga Segelsälskap - Goteborg, Sweden

New to the Gov Cup is Göteborg Kungliga Segelsälskap, from Goteborg, Sweden. Their team has been racing all over Europe in a variety of boats, but this will be their first experience in Gov Cup 21’s. The remaining teams represent Yacht Clubs that have participated one or more times during the 46 year history of the Governor’s Cup.
Nevin Snow, the skipper of the 2011 winning team from San Diego Yacht Club and the youngest ever winner of the Cup, will return to race again together with his 2011 crew since all are still eligible. Nevin will try to become the eighth two-time winner in Cup history. The third and fourth place teams, both from New Zealand, will also be led by returning skippers.

On the water International Umpires will provide instant response to protests and infractions. Up to date information will be available before, during and after the racing at www.balboayachtclub.com as well as on Gov Cup pages on facebook and twitter.

Behind every great sporting event like Governor’s Cup are great sponsors. Without their generous support, the event would not be possible. This year there are many returning sponsors. The presenting sponsor is Sterling BMW. In addition, Newport Balboa Sailing and Seamanship Association (NBSSA), owner and manager of the Governor’s Cup 21 sailboat racing fleet, and CR&R, a leading Southern California waste and recycling company, will provide extensive support.

A new category of sponsorship is Team Underwriters, which includes Balboa Boat Rentals, Duffy Boats, Ayres Hotel & Suites, Hirsch Pipe & Supply Co., Inc. and David and Deborah Lake.
