America’s Cup

America’s Cup

It’s too bad the America’s Cup is not coming back to San Francisco.  From a spectator’s point of view it was an absolutely perfect venue.  You could see the start, the finish, the jockeying for position, the boats tacking, just amazing. The Bay was a gorgeous backdrop […]
