America's Cup San Francisco covers it all, from the story of bringing the world's oldest sporting trophy to the Golden Gate Yacht Club and building the new-look America's Cup organization, to the launch of the AC72s--the fastest, most demanding catamarans on the planet. Get to know the teams who wield these powerful boats, the design challenges behind their build, and how the world's best sailors harness the elements to make them fly.
With a distinct focus on San Francisco, this souvenir keepsake not only follows the quest for the world's oldest trophy as it unfolds in the blustery winds and beautiful waters of San Francisco Bay, but also offers a unique perspective on neighborhoods and landmarks throughout the city. Complete with photographs from the world's foremost marine photographers and a removable race map, America's Cup San Francisco: The Official Guide is the ultimate companion to the 34th America's Cup.
