Americas Cup scheduled in San Francisco

June 25, 2013 by  

This year, San Francisco will be hosting the Americas Cup. It is the largest sailing race in the world and there are events throughout the year. The culmination of the Cup is the finals, which will be in September 2013 held on Northern California’s San Francisco Bay. With nine days of racing in September, along with four other events during August, there will be plenty to see and presents a family-friendly adventure.

The residents and visitors in the area will likely see announcements throughout the region about this upcoming event. Printing companies provide the flyer and poster printing for events of this type frequently.

There are a number of vantage points located around San Francisco Bay, of which some are more popular than others. One of the best places to see the action is from Marina Green. There are unobstructed views over the racing area from here, but be prepared for it to be very crowded. Close to Marina Green is Crissy Field, which will also be busy, but it generally affords more space.

Along with being one of the iconic landmarks of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge is also a great location to watch the racing action from due to the elevated and unobstructed views.

For a slightly different location, Alcatraz Island also offers some fantastic views of the racing and a tour of the facility can be combined with watching some of the racing action. Another alternative is to book a boat cruise, where the action will be right in front of spectators.
