Four AC72s in the bay

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series.

I was told that today was the first time that four AC72s were sailing in the San Francisco bay. There were two boats from Team Oracle USA and one each from Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa Challenge.

Hopefully we’ll be treated to this view a few more times. This was fun!
