Ezra Garrett, Vice President of Community Relations & Executive Director of PG&E Corporation Foundation, with America’s Cup Youth Day Guests

San Francisco’s youth will learn to sail come the 2013 America’s Cup Finals, thanks to PG&E and the Treasure Island Sailing Center.

PG&E and The Treasure Island Sailing Center have teamed up to create America’s Cup Youth Day, a program focused on focused on brining the sport of sailing to the City’s youth through interactive activities and up-close views to the intense racing action on the water.

One hundred elementary school students from San Francisco’s Western Addition Beacon Center after-school program participated in the first-ever event that took place during the October 2012 World Series Action. Children had the opportunity to watch the sailors compete on the world’s fastest boats – the AC45 wing-sailed catamaran – and experience a variety of interactive activities such as knot-tying, soap-boat racing, and net traverse stations.

Stay tuned for 2013 America’s Cup Youth Day dates during the Louis Vuitton Cup and America’s Cup Finals.
