America's Cup trophy visits Maui, race apparently won't
May 2, 2014 - Robert Collias
Here is the start of an interesting story filed Thursday from my colleague Rich Van Scoy, a copy editor for us who doesn't get enough chances to write, IMHO:
While Norbert Bajurin looks forward to some activity in Hawaii regarding the 2017 America's Cup, the commodore whose yacht club holds the coveted trophy does not foresee the race coming here.
"We're working on it. Honestly, we may not have it here," said Bajurin, during an interview with The Maui News before his appearance at the Better Business Bureau's Lunch and Learn event Thursday at the King Kamehameha Golf Club in Waikapu.
"Perhaps, we'll have a training thing," he said in reference to Hawaii's involvement.
Bajurin is commodore of San Francisco's Golden Gate Yacht Club, which is the current holder of the America's Cup won by Larry Ellison's Team Oracle USA in 2013. The cup was on display at the luncheon in Waikapu before making a trek to the Lahaina Yacht Club in West Maui.
As holder of the cup, Bajurin's club has a say in where the race will take place in 2017.
"I want to see it back in San Francisco," said Bajurin.
