January 30, 2012
The Coast Guard has released the preposed regulations for the racing area in the AC45 World Series this year and AC34 in 2013. In a nutshell they are restricting some boat traffic on race days on the Cityfront and east to Treasure Island in the form of a long box (kind of like Fleet Week).

March 6: Presidio Log Cabin, 1299 Storey Ave., San Francisco;
