America’s Cup sets sails this July 4th, bringing the world’s fastest boats and best sailors to San Francisco for a summer of racing. The America’s Cup holds a rich history – after all, it is the oldest (and most prominent) trophy in international sports. 2013’s defender is the ORACLE TEAM USA, who will take on the winner of the challenger series, the Louis Vuitton Cup. There are two major spots along the waterfront the race can be observed from: America’s Cup Village (located at Pier 27/29) and America’s Cup Pavilion (located at Marina Green).
