Norbert Bajurin, Commodore, Golden Gate Yacht Club
Julian Guthrie, Reporter, San Francisco Chronicle; Author, The Billionaire and the Mechanic: How Larry Ellison and a Car Mechanic Teamed Up to Win Sailing's Greatest Race, The America's Cup, Twice
Michael Krasny, host, KQED’s Forum – Moderator

In last summer’s 34th America's Cup, San Francisco’s home team, Oracle USA, was down eight-to-one when it pulled off a comeback for the ages, with eight straight wins against Emirates Team New Zealand. The victorious skipper, Jimmy Spithill, was at the helm supported by his team and the unlikely partnership of Golden Gate Yacht Club’s Commodore Norbert Bajurin and Larry Ellison, co-founder and billionaire CEO of Oracle Corporation. They’ll talk about the danger and drama of sailing these ultra-fast, aerodynamically designed 72-foot catamarans. Guthrie is the author of The Billionaire and the Mechanic, which tells the incredible story of how a car mechanic and one of the world's richest men teamed up to win the world's greatest race – twice!

Affectionately known as the "Auld Mug," The America’s Cup is the oldest international sporting trophy, and it's coming to the Club as well!
