America’s Cup Hall of Fame
2022 Induction Ceremony
October 14th, 2022 at 1800 EDT (2200 Zulu)
New York Yacht Club, New York City, NY
The Herreshoff Marine Museum / America’s Cup Hall of Fame is happy to announce that the 2022 America’s Cup Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be in the iconic Model Room at the New York Yacht Club on October 14th.
Following the resounding success of the America’s Cup Hall of Fame’s 30th Anniversary Celebration earlier this year, and the 2016 induction, both held in the same venue, this year’s inductees, Larry Ellison, Dirk Kramers and Dawn Riley, are looking forward to another wonderful dinner in the Model Room surrounded by legendary America’s Cup yachts. Hall of Famer Gary Jobson will once again serve as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies.
“This will be a terrific event,” said Herreshoff Museum President Bill Lynn. “Given the somewhat America-centric Class of 2022 (Dirk Kramers is Dutch but lives in the US), it makes sense to hold this induction here so that the inductees’ fans can more easily attend. It will be a very interesting gathering of AC enthusiasts, and it should be a hell of a party!”
The evening will begin with cocktails in the NYYC Grill Room followed by a dinner befitting the Inductees’ achievements in the world of yacht racing and the America’s Cup.
AC Hall of Fame Selection Committee Chair Steve Tsuchiya is also looking forward to the event. “After 2020’s virtual event, and 2021’s “lockdown edition” in Auckland, it will be terrific to a more traditional induction ceremony”, said Tsuchiya. “We’re looking forward to celebrating with Larry, Dirk, and Dawn.”
Black Tie Optional.
