double UP

As May West once observed, too much of a good thing can be wonderful.

So, rather than choose between two finalist candidates for a summer internship in the design department of the America’s Cup Event Authority, the ACEA took both. We’re talking about two capable, worthy kids, so why not.

The setting was the annual high school design competition of the
Architectural Foundation of San Francisco, with an awards breakfast held in the art deco extravaganza of the City Club (once the Stock Exchange Club). Erina Yamada and Matthew Lew were the winners of the summer internship, and they’ll be exposed to plenty, working in a professional environment. Things are heating up in the ACEA’s design department. Yep, they’ll be exposed to plenty.

Mohammed Eid, winner in the Best Model category, acted as spokesman for the group, with Yamada immediately to his right and Lew to his left . . .

Regular readers will know that the winner of the overall prize (a summer course at CCAC) was Lowell High School’s Cole Skaggs, seen below with Wesley Wernimont, Head of Design for ACEA . . .

And you will know that the real prize is a sail on Peter Stoneberg’s catamaran, Shadow, for all the category winners. Until Oracle Racing’s AC45s arrive in June for their training session, Shadow is still the fastest cat on San Francisco Bay.

And for making sure that Jack met Jill and Peter met Paul, I got an award too . . .

I’m assured that reassembling the legos from time to time is part of the fun.
