The America's Cup SF poster signing, this one with Kiwi grinders Winston Macfarlane and Chris Ward, continue to make everybody smile and one never knows what fans will bring to get autographed and entertain the sailors with, from a French professional photographer with his own spectacular blow ups to children getting both sneakers and then both socks autographed, being not ticklish.
Posters signings happen daily at 3:10 and 4:00 for half an hour, at a table outside the museum and near the display of the AC45 hull. The America's Cup hands out free posters for autographs but fans bring all kinds of things from the shirt still on their backs to lucky baseballs.
If a team wins the Cup the poster signings and other post-race activities will be pre-empted by the awards ceremony.
