Hold on a second. Surely to make an economic impact to local businesses of 350 odd Mill plus the exposure for SF can only be positive for the city better than no millions and no exposure. It is really quite simple. I just don't get how people can see that as a bad thing other than and politicking

Sorry MSP but you really are barking mad

I live in a place Perfect for AC Sailing

 

Butt the current trend of Civic Leaders Nationwide @ All Levels is to Force Wankers (upon voters) into Power

 

with the Net Result of No One Having a Clew about matters such as the America's Cup

 

DAGO Has a Great Chance to host the next Cup Butt No Candidate for mayor (Vote tomorrow) gives a shit regardless of Y-klub affiliation 

 

They have personal Eggs to fri once in office  :(

 

San Diego stands to have a 100% chance of stuffing up any chance at hosting the next Cup !!!

America’s Cup: New figures increase loss incurred by San Francisco
 
Published on February 10, 2014|
 
 
 
 
 
(February 10, 2014) – San Francisco’s red ink from the 34th America’s Cup got deeper Monday, with updated figures showing the city lost $11.5 million hosting the event last year for the first time.
 
Preliminary figures released in December showed the event had cost taxpayers at least $5.5 million, but that number did not include expenses for the Port of San Francisco, a city department with its own budget funded by rent revenue from its property, not taxes.
 
The Cup had a net cost to the port of $5.5 million, and its cost to the general fund, the city’s main spending account, was revised upward to $6 million, for a total city loss of $11.5 million, according to a new report by the Board of Supervisors budget and legislative analyst.
 
The report also found that 517 San Francisco residents were employed in 2013 through contracts with race organizers, known as the America’s Cup Event Authority.
 
A wrap-up economic impact study by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute released in December found that the event created 2,863 jobs, down from original projections of 8,840 jobs. That study also found that the event, which stretched over roughly three months, generated at least $364 million in total economic impact. That figure rises to more than $550 million if the long-planned construction of a new cruise ship terminal, which the regatta served as a catalyst to finally get built, is factored in.
 
The latest analysis, requested by Supervisor John Avalos, comes as the Mayor Ed Lee’s administration has reached an impasse in negations with software billionaire Larry Ellison’s Oracle Team USA sailing club about hosting the next Cup in 2017.
 
Russell Coutts, who heads Ellison’s sailing team, recently said the organization is looking at five U.S. locations as possible host sites, including San Francisco, San Diego and Hawaii. The winner of the Cup gets to determine the location and boat type for the next regatta.
 
Among the team’s objections to San Francisco’s offer to host the event a second time are paying rent for the venue space that was provided last year and being compelled to pay union rates for labor, some involved in the negotiations said.
 
The report from Budget and Legislative Analyst Harvey Rose’s office, though, specifically calls for the city to charge rent if it hosts the Cup again and to ensure the event authority complies “with local hire and prevailing wage requirements for all events covered by the agreement.”

Wow…expensive lessons in basic sports marketing  "…bumping against the NFL in Sept didn't work so well.."   (I think I recall that advice in these forums about 2 years ago??).  

 

On a slightly positive note, I do like the idea of qualifying rounds in "local" or "regional" markets, but you have to get costs waaay down so that participation in those goes up dramatically.   That model only works when you have to winnow the field down to 10/12/16 or so in the LV and you have 20+ participants to start with (not even close at $100M +).   4 in the LV seems a bit off to me...

 

Finally I'll say, moving this out of SF is a bad idea.  For one, any other potential host venue has info confirming the reality of the economic benefits (limited) and the administration doesn't have any credibility on that front - so I doubt offers elsewhere will ultimately be much better than SF's and 2) It continues the uncertainty.  They need an event deal NOW in order to properly commercialize.  Throwing it open, missing deadlines, and inevitable threats to walk away from the next potential host city are all turn-offs for broadcasters and sponsors. Unfortunately, that appears a likely outcome.

Which makes a good argument if you've under-utilised resources, empty hotels etc. In SF?

That didn't prevent a lot of extra economic impact from happening; certainly I am one (small) example of that.

Am actually happy enough if it goes to Hawaii but SF, most especially for the wind machine, is a hard place to beat.

SAN DIEGO PORT OFFICIALS OK AMERICA'S CUP BID
— Feb. 11, 2014 11:09 PM EST
You are here
Home » San Diego » San Diego port officials OK America's Cup bid

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Port commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to submit a bid to host the next America's Cup on San Diego Bay in August 2017.

The commissioners, two of them sailors, spoke enthusiastically about the prospect of hosting sailing's marquee regatta. The commissioners directed the port's staff to respond to a request for information from America's Cup officials by March 3.

America's Cup officials are talking with other venues about hosting the 35th America's Cup because San Francisco officials haven't offered the same terms they did for last summer's regatta, which ended with Oracle Team USA staging one of the greatest comebacks in sports.

San Diego "definitely is one of the venues that seems to be ticking quite a lot of boxes," Russell Coutts, the CEO of Oracle Team USA, said by phone from the British Virgin Islands, where he's attending a regatta in the RC44 class, which he helped launch. "It'd be a really good venue."

Coutts said the plan is to eliminate two or three potential venues in the next month or so, and then negotiate host city agreements with two ports. One of those ports would be a backup. Officials also are looking at venues to host the challenger eliminations and warmup regattas called the America's Cup World Series.

Coutts, who skippered Team New Zealand to a 5-0 win against Dennis Conner off San Diego in 1995, said the process could stretch into the summer.

The only other confirmed potential venue is Hawaii. While not confirmed, it's believed Newport, R.I., and Long Beach, Calif., also are in the mix.

San Diego hosted the America's Cup in 1988, 1992 and 1995, with racing on the Pacific Ocean off Point Loma.

Commissioner Dan Malcolm, who said he's passionate about sailing, used a basketball analogy for the San Diego Port's bid.

"Even though we're in 3-point land on this shot, I think it is definitely worth it for the potential impact that this could have on San Diego to take this shot," he said.

Continuing the analogy, commissioner Marshall Merrifield said it was "maybe a solid outside two-point shot. This isn't just a sailing race. This is not the sailing we're used to. These are sailboats that actually fly. It's very exciting stuff, very dramatic."

The 34th America's Cup was contested in 72-foot, wing-sailed catamarans that rode up on hydrofoils, with both hulls completely out of the water. Those boats were expensive and, some felt, overpowered with their 131-foot wing sails. To cut costs, organizers are proposing sailing the next America's Cup in catamarans of 60-65 feet, with smaller wing sails and fewer sailors.

Merrifield said he felt San Diego has more to offer than San Francisco.

"We have much better stadium sailing viewing," he said. "People in Berkeley cannot see these like the folks in Coronado can."

He also said the port has more control over the services the America's Cup officials are looking for.

"We may be a stalking horse. Others may be a stalking horse. But we should put our best foot forward and be assertive," Merrifield said.

The America's Cup in San Francisco was the first to be sailed inshore rather than miles offshore.

"I think the racecourse in San Diego, quite frankly, sets up better than San Francisco," said Coutts, a five-time America's Cup winner.

Negotiations in San Francisco have perhaps reached the point of no return. Talks are at an impasse because America's Cup officials want free rent for piers, as well as have police, fire and other services provided. They're also opposed to paying the equivalent of union wages for construction work.

America's Cup officials are requesting free use of piers and fire, police and other services in San Diego, according to a presentation Tuesday by SEA San Diego. The group organized an America's Cup World Series regatta in November 2011 and a regatta in the RC44 class in March 2011, both on the bay.

If San Diego is chosen for the America's Cup, Oracle Team USA would move its base to San Diego in mid-2016.

Port officials said it was too early to calculate costs and economic impact of an America's Cup in San Diego.

While last summer's regatta gave the staid old America's Cup a remarkable adrenaline rush, it generated less economic impact in the Bay Area than projected and cost city taxpayers more than $5 million.

"Today was an important step," said SEA San Diego board member Troy Sears, who has been active in past America's Cup regattas and owns Next Level Sailing. One of his boats is a replica of the schooner America, whose victory over a fleet of British ships in 1851 gave the oldest trophy in international sports its name.

"It's nice that their enthusiasm has been revealed, and today's public hearing provided that opportunity," Sears said.

That's a fallacy if someone else would have slept in that hotel bed, eat that restaurant meal etc. It also assumes that the city could not have spent money in other ways that would have the same or higher return.

If more government or local government spending really unconditionally boosted the economy, the wrong side won the Cold War.

The economic impact to the City from hosting the America’s Cup was 27 percent 
of the original projections by the Office of Economic and Workforce 
Development’s (OEWD) economic consultant, as shown in the table below.
 
The 
original projections were prepared in 2010 prior to selection of San Francisco as 
the host city and were based on 15 racing syndicates participating in the America’s 
Cup sailing races.
The 34th America’s Cup included only four rather than 15 racing 
syndicates and attracted fewer spectators than estimated.

I still don't understand why the original predictions, when all the wannabes were still claiming they might show, even matters.

What actually matters is how a few $M of public investment generated a few $HundredM in activity.

While $36 million of taxpayers' money may not have secured the America's Cup for New Zealand, a greenstone replica can be yours for a cut-price $70,000.

Te Ha o Aotearoa, a 7/8th scale replica of the cup made from solid Kahurangi pounamu, will go up for auction in Auckland at the end of the month.

The artwork, which weighs 36kg, was commissioned in 1999 by Auckland company Creativision, which had a licence to produce greenstone America's Cup products for that

Oracle Corp. demanded one of our reporters sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) just to attend the opening of the America's Cup. The company apparently worried the journalist would somehow glean sailing secrets from Larry Ellison's brain and ruin the team's future chances.

"This is the level of legal protection the team requires," a spokesman e-mailed the reporter. "I have no discretion to vary this. There is no time limit simply because the technologies maybe developed for the Cup but not used but could be employed in the future."

An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If convicted, the defendants are subject to the maximum penalties stated above. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court only after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.

William Frentzen, Susan Badger, and Waqar Hasib are the Assistant U.S. Attorneys who are prosecuting the case. The prosecution is the result of a five-year investigation by the FBI, Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations Division, San Francisco Police Department, Oakland Police Department, and Antioch Police Department.
