....The Final America's Cup Races....
During the summer of 2013 the final America's Cup races, using 72 foot catamarans, were held on San Francisco Bay, just north of the city waterfront. Many Coast Guard Auxiliary facilities, including Silver Charm from Flotilla 19, helped maintain a safety zone around the race course. Click on the pictures below, taken from Auxiliary boats....
