The America’s Cup

The America’s Cup is once again returning to San Francisco for a “Summer of Racing.” Opening day is July 4 with the competition and local festivities running through September 21. That means there are plenty of opportunities to head down to the water to watch the world’s fastest boats and best sailors in action.

There are two main live sites that will be set up along the waterfront. The America’s Cup Park at Piers 27/29 is free to enter and features a daily, informative race show program (dock-out, dock-in, history, athlete interviews, autograph sessions, etc.). There will be a wide variety of food and beverage options, merchandise stores, the Louis Vuitton Exhibition, and other interactive and informative experiences and exhibits.

The America’s Cup Pavilion, located at the same site, will also be a scene of excitement and fun with family shows, community and business events, comedy acts and with world-renown performers like Sting, Steve Miller Band, Heart, the San Francisco Symphony and more. During race days, the Pavilion will also have race footage on the big screen along with commentary.

Further down the waterfront, the America’s Cup Village at Marina Green will offer free access for all visitors along with paid seating where fans can buy the best seats on the Bay to reserve their view of the action. The America’s Cup Village will also have food and beverage services, merchandise and live race commentary.

Coldwell Banker’s own Rob Landsness is especially excited for the arrival of the America’s Cup to San Francisco.  Among the many roles he plays as an active member of the local community, Rob Landsness serves on the Chairman of the dining committee and the St. Francis Yacht Club, which is located just a short walk away from the America’s Cup Village in the Marina District.  Over the course of the next two and a half months, Rob Landsness will be doing his part to support this monumental event.
