Fresh from flipping in the Fastnet, one of sailing’s biggest names will be our speaker at the AYC membership meeting, Tuesday, October 11, beginning at 7pm. AYC meetings are held at the newly-named Caddy Shack @ Rolling Hills, 1415 N Mill Ave, Tempe.
Peter was the navigator aboard Rambler 100 when it lost its canting keel and rolled over, sending its crew into the icy water. All were rescued.
Before the Fastnet turtle, Peter was better known for being a five-time America’s Cup contender, including a two-time winner on Stars & Stripes. Sailing fans will recognize his face and voice from his television commentary of the America’s Cup on ESPN and Versus.
He’s in demand as a sailing, business and motivational speaker. And he’s written several books, including his latest, Peter Isler’s Little Blue Book of Sailing Secrets, which was excerpted in the latest Sailing World magazine. You’ll find more on Peter’s background on his website.
This should be one of the most-attended meetings of the year, so arrive early!
