Picture the scene:
You’re on San Francisco Bay relaxing aboard a world-class yacht that makes its home in S.F. As you look portside, you gaze up at the Golden Gate Bridge in all its glory as the sun shines on its northern tower. In one hand, you hold a glass of your favorite Napa Valley wine. In the other, an hors d’oeuvre that was prepared by a top chef. Just off the bow is all of the action. You look out in amazement as you cheer on your team as it passes, cutting through the San Francisco Bay’s notorious windswept water en route to the 34th America’s Cup title. It’s an exhilarating experience that you’ll never forget…
The 2013 America’s Cup races take place this summer on the picturesque San Francisco Bay – the world’s largest natural-view arena – and Events By Corsi is there every step of the way to provide boat-loving aficionados with the finest upscale viewing and participation experience during the world’s most-coveted waterway extravaganza.
For more than 160 years now, the America’s Cup has been considered the premier boating competition. From its humble beginnings during a blustery day in 1851 when an exceptionally fast schooner named America, racing in the waters on the south coast of England, tore past the English entry, a boat named The Royal Yacht, to unseat Great Britain as the undisputed ruler of the seas, the America’s Cup has left an enduring legacy of excitement. The 2013 America’s Cup continues on that path, but at breakneck speed as the wing-sailed catamarans used today are capable of reaching double the wind speed, often exceeding 40 knots (46 mph).
Simply put, the quest for the silver trophy cup is one of the most exhilarating in all of sports, and continues to soar in popularity. The America’s Cup is now broadcast around the world, with an audience of more than 400 million watching and cheering their favorite teams. Events By Corsi is proud to host, produce and manage unparalleled spectator opportunities in San Francisco for this historic event.
The America’s Cup brings together not only the world’s finest yachtsmen, but the best in international sailing, design and boat building to compete in the summer of 2013. It’s a must-see event that Events By Corsi can capture in its brilliant regal splendor.
