An America’s Cup evening with two time Cup winner and Skaneateles lake native – Peter Isler – for the benefit of Junior Sailing on Skaneateles Lake
On August 20th, at 6:00 pm, two time America’s Cup winner Peter Isler will entertain the audience at the Skaneateles Sailing Club with stories and picture presentation from his America’s Cup career (most recently Isler was in Valencia, Spain serving as Navigator in the 2007 America’s Cup for the US team – BMW Oracle Racing) and insight into the future of the oldest trophy in sports.
Isler (who’s family has had a camp on Skaneateles Lake for three generations) won the Cup twice, serving as navigator for Dennis Connor aboard his Stars & Stripes in Australia and San Diego. He has also covered the Cup four times for television (ESPN, Outdoor Life Network & VERSUS Network) and is the co-author of the best selling book, “Sailing For Dummies”. College Sailor of the Year at Yale University, and one of the most respected names in the sport, Isler honed his early skills sailing Sunfish and Lasers on Skaneateles Lake.
The evening is being sponsored by The Sailboat Shop and will include a barbecue and silent auction (including some of Isler’s BMW Oracle team gear). The cost is $15.00 for adults, $10.00 for students and $30.00 per family. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit Junior Sailing on Skaneateles Lake through three organizations: the junior sailing program of Skaneateles Sailing Club, the junior program of Skaneateles Country Club and the Skaneateles chapter of the Sea Scouts.
Skaneateles Lake has a long history in the sport of sailing, including being the birthplace of the world famous Lightning Class. Come help support the future of Skaneateles Lake’s sailing legacy and enjoy an entertaining evening with one of the superstars in the sport of sailboat racing.
