Wild looking conditions on the San Francisco Bay for the practicing AC45's for next weeks races. This is why San Francisco is such a perfect spot for the America's Cup. Big wind, big waves, fast boats. Some pix on the AC34 website of the action. San Francisco Bay continues to provide stellar sailing with fresh breezes under sunny skies. So it’s not a surprise to see the teams taking advantage of every minute during their training sessions on the Bay. With winds again approaching 20 knots by mid-afternoon, the crews are being challenged by the heavy conditions and both man and machine are needing maintenance each day after sailing.
