America's Cup 34

Posted on Mon 30 September 2013 in Destinations - San Francisco


Dawn and I were at home in Honolulu watching the America's Cup on YouTube on the day they tied the race up forcing a final deciding race. We booked a last minute flight to San Francisco to watch the race and were not disappointed! Team USA Oracle won the race, retaining the cup in one of the most exciting come from behind wins in sporting history.

The event was excellently staged and watching from the shoreline with the TV monitors and live audio coverage was perfect! These boats are going so fast it is amazing. In our America's Cup Flickr set there are couple of videos that give you sense of how fast they really are. After the race we walked down to Pier 39 to see the trophy ceremony. You can see how close we able to get to the cup!

To top it all off, we just happen to also have friends from Seattle in town in SF at the same time! So, we had a mini reunion with great friends which wasn't even planned! Yay Universe!

Great weekend. Great Race. Great Friends.
