Wow! …. 45 foot foiling catamarans, racing close to shore and featuring the very best sailors in the world – including Sir Ben Ainslie, James Spithill, Ian Percy and Frank Cammas. What’s not to like there huh?
Welcome to the Americas Cup World Series :-)
This really is going to be a spectacular event down on the South Coast in Portsmouth and you could be there as tickets are now on sale!
Actually, you can get FREE tickets – no catch, just go to the website (Links below) and ‘purchase’ your free tickets (Waterside Arena) for each of the four days (July 23rd to 26th). Alternatively, you can pay for ‘Fanzone’ tickets and/or ‘Fanzone plus Grandstand’…..or a mix of all of these (We’ve already bought two days worth of free tickets and one day of ‘Fanzone plus Grandstand’ for example)
“But Lee, what’s this whole thing all about?” I hear you shout? (Sonia mainly to be honest, but I can also hear some more of you out there ;-) ) ….well check out this link and go explore – but come back here afterwards and carry on reading: http://acws-portsmouth.americascup.com/en/the-americas-cup-world-series.html
If loads of us want to go, then maybe we could arrange a coach and setup a Manor Park Day out?
Membership secretary Paul has sent an EMail out to you all today with loads of information about the event, so check your inbox again. At the bottom of that mail, there’s a big yellow button (Like the ‘Big Yellow’ watch, except that this one won’t go around your wrist or beep at you…) It says: “WE WANT TO COME!” so, if you fancy a big day out with your Manor Park SC friends whilst someone else drives, then press that button and let Paul know. YOU NEED TO BE QUICK, THOUGH, AS TICKETS ARE GOING FAST – RESPOND TO PAUL BY 9AM ON MONDAY 9TH OF MARCH. It’s possible that we may be able to make a group booking.
If you fancy different days – or multiple days, then go buy your tickets asap – don’t forget that even your free tickets need to be booked.
Hotels are turning expensive so might be a bit far out of town now, but you may still find something here: http://uk.hotels.com/ – and if you’re quick, ‘The Red Lion Hotel’ in Fareham is currently available at a very good price!
So come and join us and foil in love with sailing! …. see what I did there? Honestly, I amaze myself sometimes I really do :-)
DON’T FORGET TO REPLY TO PAUL IF YOU FANCY AN MPSC DAY OUT!
