America’s Cup Returns to Downtown Stadium


Published:

A new group is bringing international sailing back to San Diego—up close and personal. We might have lost the America’s Cup final bid to San Francisco, but the World Series qualifying round takes place here November 12-20, when 15 teams from 12 countries challenge each other to match races on multimillion dollar AC45 catamarans. The idea is to make big boat sailing a stadium-type spectator sport—and the stadium is all of San Diego Bay. The Port authorized grandstand seating along Broadway pier, as the starting line is just 150 feet into the bay. Pulling feeds from individual windspeed indicators, over a dozen cameras afixed to each boat, and video from helicopters hovering above, huge outdoor flatscreens will show all the action live from around the bay. Visit sea-sandiego.org for more details on the race.
