S.F. Officials To Formally Make Offer To Host America's Cup Again
S.F. officials today plan to submit a letter to Team Oracle “formally offering to host the America’s Cup sailing competition again,” but the city this time will not be “offering any big subsidies or real estate as part of the deal.” S.F. Mayor Ed Lee has expressed a desire to have the event back. As winner of the competition, Oracle Chair Larry Ellison is “expected to pick the next America’s Cup site sometime in the next few months.” The competition will probably take place in ’17 (S.F. CHRONICLE, 12/23).
