John Craig - appointed Principal Race Officer - 34th America’s Cup
John Craig, America's Cup 34 Principal Race Officer, gave the first public presentation in San Francisco about what the course area for the Cup races would look like. He's planning on using every available inch of open water in the main bay and working with all the stakeholders to make sure that works.
The shoreside venues are complex and need to fill a lot of different roles - not the least is providing vantage points to see this exciting race without getting out on a boat. The 72' catamarans will be visible from many locations on Marin and San Francisco. We want to make sure that everyone who lives here knows the America's Cup is taking place on the Bay.
Team bases, media offices, AC34 administrative offices and other activities will take space on the piers with access to the water. John lays out what is being proposed and where it will be housed.
