Chesapeake Multihull Association is fortunate to have Gary Jobson - a top-tier personality in the world of sailing - make a presentation on March 30.  He has a talent for telling a story and he comes with terrific audio-visual support courtesy of NBC and ESPN.  The presentation will include:
 
 ·       34th America's Cup  (about half of the program)
 
 This proved to be one of the most exciting comebacks in all of sports. Commentating for NBC, Gary Jobson, was on the water every day for the Louis Vuitton Challenger Trials and the America’s Cup broadcasting live. Gary will present an exclusive inside look of this amazing story.
