Press Release
Tuesday, March 27, 2012

The California Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime), a campus of The California State University, has been selected as the site for the 6th William I. Koch Sea Scout Cup, which will be held from July 22-28, 2012. 

Named after Florida international businessman William "Bill" Koch, who successfully defended the America's Cup in 1992, the biennial sailing regatta is devoted to young men and women between the ages or 15 and 21 years of age.

Sea Scout teams from around the world will compete in the weeklong regatta at the Vallejo campus, marking the first time the competition will be held on the West Coast. Cal Maritime was chosen because of the sailing venue and spectacular waterfront view of the racing area. The public will have an opportunity to view the competition from Cal Maritime’s waterfront. 

"We are thrilled that Cal Maritime has been selected to host this summer's William I. Koch International Sea Scout Cup Regatta," said Dr. Gerald Jakubowski, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Cal Maritime. "A large percentage of our cadets come to us with Boy Scout or Sea Scout experience, many of whom hold the highest rank of Eagle Scout. Therefore, the regatta will serve as an excellent recruiting tool for us as well."

Jakubowski added that tours of the Cal Maritime campus, including its state-of-the-art ship simulators, will also be provided to the scouts. The regatta is being held in conjunction with the Sea Scout’s 100th Anniversary.
