That was fun. Alameda is ready to do it again.
Within days of Oracle USA winning AC34 off the coast of Spain in 2010, Alamedans sprang into action. Local sailing enthusiasts, maritime businesses, and city reps formed the America's Cup Ad Hoc Committee to help Alameda benefit from the 34th America's Cup.
Artemis and Luna Rossa -- two of the three challengers for AC34 -- set up their bases at Alameda Point. The team families lived in our neighborhoods and went to our schools. We shared community events and helped Alameda maritime and hospitality businesses benefit from the America's Cup. You can watch our final report presentation here.
AC35 is sadly being held elsewhere so we are on hiatus. But if another America's Cup or high profile regatta ever comes back to San Francisco Bay, we are ready to help!
