Americas Cup Weekend

I'll be honest...I haven't really been following America's Cup that closely this summer, but when I went out to cheer on Team USA last weekend, I realized what all the buzz was about. It is actually pretty exhilarating watching these massive catamarans glide by so fast! And you have the beautiful San Francisco Bay as the racecourse which isn't half bad. I love that they've set up bleachers in the Marina where you can leisurely watch for free...especially since the seats seemed a bit pricey for someone who isn't a diehard fan! Sports like sailing remind me of watching rowing at the Henley Regatta in England...very chic & elite. Although I didn't quite know what was going on, I felt completely comfortable amongst a crowd of people who obviously weren't massively into it either. I was cheering for Team USA, and that's all that counts, right?

Americas Cup is only going on for another week or so, so I'd definitely recommend heading down on a weekend to check it out. Maybe bring a bottle of bubbly and set up shop on the beach...could turn into a fabulous afternoon out!
