The Herreshoff Marine Museum / America's Cup Hall of Fame advises that 2020 America's Cup Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held via Zoom videoconference this Thursday October 29th.

Emceed by America's Cup Hall of Famer Gary Jobson, the hour-long program will feature video tributes to the inductees, remarks by the inductees and their presenters, Steve Tsuchiya, Brad Butterworth, and Gary Jobson. The event will also include updates from the 2021 AC Teams.

"This is shaping up to be a great event", said Herreshoff Museum President Bill Lynn. "It's unfortunate that we weren't able to execute on Plan A which was an induction at the INEOS Team UK base in June, but this 'new normal' version comes with its own benefits. AC enthusiasts from around the world will be able to participate, and we hope to have record attendance!"

The timing of the event is geared to provide the best opportunity for attendees from the US, Europe, and the Antipodes to tune in. In addition, a limited number of VIP tickets are available for "cocktails" with the inductee of choice - 15 each for Messrs. Willis and Vrolijk. Each VIP ticket comes with a special commemorative glass to contain each attendee's drink of choice.

AC Hall of Fame Selection Committee Chair Steve Tsuchiya is looking forward to it. "We've held Induction Galas in several different countries, but this is a new one for us," said Tsuchiya. "We're not the first Hall of Fame to go virtual, but we're hoping we can set the standard for attendees with Cup fans from around the world."

Tickets for the virtual event are US$25.00 and can be purchased online at herreshoff.org/achof/induction2020.
