Come meet author Julian Guthrie and Norbert Bajurin, the "mechanic" behind the bestselling novel, "The Billionaire and The Mechanic: How Larry Ellison and a Car Mechanic Teamed Up to Win Sailing's Greatest Race, The America's Cup" and get the inside story of how the America's Cup came home.
Julian, an award-winning journalist with the San Francisco Chronicle and contributor to the Wall Street Journal, will show an exclusive video presentation from her book, including images of Larry Ellison and the astounding boats of the America's Cup past and present. She will also discuss the history of the Cup, the colorful characters, the mistakes made, lessons learned, and where the Cup almost went instead of San Francisco.
Julian will be joined by Norbert Bajurin, the "mechanic" of her book, who is the commodore of the Golden Gate Yacht Club, the 6th trustee of the oldest trophy in international sports. Norbert will discuss details of racing on the San Francisco Bay, and his unlikely partnership with Oracle Team USA and friendship with Ellison.
"The Billionaire and The Mechanic" books will be available for purchase at the event.
