Where is the best place to watch the racing in San Fran? There are some good spots to see the bay up on Russian hill, does anyone know someone who owns an apartment up there?

From a Moore 24 - oh, wait - we sail when they can't.

St. Francis Yacht Club - right at the starting line, just downwind of the top of the course, club grounds open to the public.  Hard to see the entire race though, but you get the best parts.  Also near the AC Marina Green "stadium", and the shuttle bus that transports between there and the main AC pier.

I watch ETNZ's race and the practicing from the other teams today on aquatic park pier which seemed to be quite a good spot as far as being able to see the majority of the course. Where abouts has jnava s been doing all his filming from? He seems to have the good spots?

I've been shooting mostly from between the St Francis and Golden Gate yacht clubs.

They've now moved the reach mark east to off the Golden Gate yacht club,

so one of the best spots now is by the wave organ east of that club here.
