Dennis Conner
America’s Cup Skipper
Mr. America’s Cup
San Diego, CA

Dear Tom:

“I’m happy to serve as a reference for your determined efforts to surpass expectations where sponsorships and PR are concerned.

In the case of Dennis Conner Sports, you were directly responsible for clearing the path for the 1988 and 1992 America’s Cup sponsorship of Stars & Stripes by American Airlines. When in 1988, we created the Pro Football Match Race featuring two America’s cup yachts skippered by myself and Ted Turner and crewed by among others, pro football players who were in San Diego to compete in that year’s Super Bowl, your singular and self-initiated efforts landed our event on the cover of USA Today with your great photo – on race day – to the delight and surprise of our corporate sponsors and me.”
