Experience Sailing at the Hall of Champions!


Posted Image
Sailing has long been a popular pastime and sport enjoyed by San Diegans. Blessed with a natural harbor, Pacific Ocean, Mission Bay and an exceptional climate, San Diego is the perfect playground for the sport. San Diegans have raised the sport to its highest levels by winning world championships, Olympic medals, the America’s Cup, and achieving global prominence in sail making, naval architecture, youth sailing, race management, and all aspects of the sport.
The Hall of Champions’ new, state-of-the-art exhibit will celebrate the sport of sailing and all that it means to San Diego. Junior and Star Boat sailing, early stages of the sport, Olympic and International success, and the science of the sport will all be featured. Additionally, there will be an entire room dedicated to the America’s Cup, including models, half models, and important imagery and information about the oldest international sporting trophy in continuous competition.
Video interactivity, including touch and laser panels, will be a prominent feature. Sailing highlights, historical videos, personal interviews, and other sailing footage will all be on display as guests experience three separate video panels.
Finally, a fully-rigged, previously raced Star Class Boat is the centerpiece of the exhibit. It stands confidently in the middle of the room with its sails full, its keel and rudder fully exposed, at a slant so as to appear heeling through the water and without any wires or supporting braces. It is a majestic sight. The Star will also call attention to a fully-rigged sabot boat, built by legendary sabot builder and San Diegan Brian Thomas.
The exhibit has been under construction for nearly a year and will open to the public on November 15! We look forward to seeing you in our museum to experience the sport of Sailing

$1,000,000 invested (1/2 = $500,000 by Bill Koch) and $0 in Promotion for the opening

That's OK I'll do the Heavy Lifting and Promote this part of Sailing in San Diego too!

People Bitch about the Media NOT Covering Sailing

Why should they if Sailing Won't Promote it's Self ???

Too many people are into Sailing for "What They Can Get Out of Sailing"

The Sport is a Great sport and can support many "Tag-Alongs"

BUT @ some point Ya Gutta Give Back & at the very least Promote the Sport

AND That doesn't Just mean "Promote Your Event"


I'll go cover the Opening and at least it will get that much exposure
