Montrose, Thanks for the reply, but I disagree, here is why. SF Bay is simply too small and too congested with commercial traffic. TV cameras will still need to be water bourne or shore side with untra long lenes, or air bourne. The 2 prime players for US TV being OLN or ESPN could care less based on past (ratings) experience. Euro and Int'l broadcasters might have an interest if the market was suitable for the sponsor brands AND the venue offered interesting racing. Please do a map search for SF Bay (I did) ...look at the dimensions...ehh, may not work.

Unlike most US coastal cities, San Franicisco has an exceptional die hard sailing population, but in my opinion, specatator interest could fade rapidly if the AC Series went on for YEARS. An alternate venue? heck, I don't know...I started this thread for discussion purposes.
BTW, I don't own a blue blazer.
