The America's Cup Race in San Francisco Bay

Blog Post created by Donna Garber on Sep 9, 2013

My husband and I had an opportunity to join a Hornblower Cruise on the San Francisco Bay to watch the America's Cup race between the Oracle Team USA and the Emirates Team New Zealand.  For those who are watching the race, you know that Team Oracle is starting 2 races down due to a penalty charged for some shady tactics. Team New Zealand is in the lead and so far, giving the USA Team a lesson in sailing.

The Cup goes to the team that wins the best of 17 races so there is a long way to go.  The weather on the Bay this weekend was spectacular. Our cruise took a spin around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge after the races.

Here are a couple of pics from our boat. Game on New Zealand!
