I played hooky this afternoon from work because it was such a beautiful, warm and sunny day and we dashed up to San Francisco to take a "Bridge to Bridge" Bay cruise. The cruise started from Pier 43 1/2 on Fisherman's Wharf, out under the Golden Gate Bridge, past Angel Island and Alcatraz Island, under the Bay Bridge, out to near AT&T Ball Park, past the Ferry Building and back to the pier.
At the beginning of the cruise, we were able to watch the high tech Oracle Team USA catamaran run trials in the Bay; it's sleek and fast ! The 20 meter sail towers over everything in its wake. There will be many great vantage points along the edge of the Bay to watch the 2013 America's Cup race.
