America’s Cup Is Calling All Budding Artists

June 10, 2015

The America’s Cup is inviting young artists to design the official poster for the America’s Cup Community Sailing Programme – Endeavour.

“Endeavour aims to introduce, educate and encourage Bermuda’s youth to discover the joys of sailing through a fun and interactive programme,” the ACEA said.

“The America’s Cup Event Authority [ACEA] has brought RS Feva, O’pen BIC and Hobie Wave boats to Bermuda to enable youth ages 9 through 12 years old across all backgrounds to experience sailing.

“The programme will officially launch in September 2015 and will be showcased all week long at the America’s Cup World Series Village held in Hamilton in October 2015.

“Students don’t miss this incredible opportunity to channel your creativity and share your talent with our community and the world.

“The winning design will be used on the official poster for the America’s Cup Community Sailing Programme – Endeavour and will also be incorporated on one of the boats: RS Feva, O’pen BIC and Hobie Wave.

    “americas cup calling ALL budding artist” suggest ALLL, so easy to target young people , yet the nadults paid 77million dollars and need relief.. why are young people always targeted to get us to say things like”oh see” thats so nice”" please, stop using the youth to avoid the adults who are looking for sincere opportunites in the country where they live.. why not open it to “ALL: bermudians… thats why adults complain that they don’t feel invited, not the children complaining, that group do not know about paying bills…smh
