Join fellow members and guests for an exciting AC34 update & new, unreleased video presented by acclaimed international yachtsman Tom Ehman:
Golden Gate Yacht Club Vice Commodore
America’s Cup Executive Director
Tuesday, August 7th
Sausalito Yacht Club
Bars & BBQ will be open for your drinking & dining pleasure!
America’s Cup World Series Races — August 22-26
Position: Vice Commodore, Golden Gate YC
Executive Director, America’s Cup Properties, Inc.
The 34th America’s Cup is the eleventh straight AC campaign for Tom Ehman. A consummate veteran of international yachting, he has been at the forefront of many of the changes and innovations that have transformed top-level sailing into the modern, professional and more media-friendly sport that it is today. Notably, Tom spearheaded on-the-water umpiring that has been used in the America’s Cup since he instituted it for the 1992 Cup in San Diego.
A former collegiate and North American sailing champion, and winner of the 1976 Championship of Champions, at age 25 he became the youngest-ever Executive Director of the USA’s national sailing association – indeed, the youngest of any national governing body for an Olympic sport in America. Since he started with the America’s Cup in 1980, Tom has served in many roles including rules advisor, team executive, event manager, and chairman of the Challenger Commission. He is the only person of long-standing involvement in the Cup who has worked only for American campaigns – New York YC, San Diego YC,
St. Francis YC, and now Golden Gate YC.
For the past three campaigns, Tom was Head of External Affairs for ORACLE Racing. He now serves as GGYC Vice Commodore and Managing Director of the GGYC America’s Cup Committee, and is Executive Director of America’s Cup Properties, Inc.

Lights, Camera, Action!
The club rolled out the red carpet for Oscar Night in February and everyone gave an Academy Award winning performance! Past-commodore and media personality Jim Gabbert — microphone in hand! –welcomed guests as they arrived and the cameras rolled. Members and guests were encouraged to dress as their favorite actor and/or glam it up, and everyone cooperated! There were a lot of tuxedos and evening gowns walking through the door, several “cast members” from The Artist (best picture) and one Girl with the Lancashire Heeler Tattoo… The event was sold out weeks in advance and no one was disappointed. In a nod to all the nominated films, the kitchen produced a delicious sit down menu featuring foods that paid tribute to the Best Picture nominations — “Descendants Macademia Nut Crusted Petrale Sole”, “Midnight in Paris Coq au Vin”, “Money Ball Short Ribs” , etc.
