In July of 2013, the prestigious 34th America’s Cup regatta will sail into the San Francisco Bay with some of the best sailors on the globe skippering some of the world’s fastest boats. Such an event doesn’t happen overnight, however, and San Francisco is already abuzz with pre-tournament planning and excitement. Organizers are hoping to make this event the best America’s Cup ever, and one that will benefit San Franciscans for years to come. Plans are under way to create a transportation-friendly event by organizing transit, bicycle, and pedestrian routes designed to move tens-of-thousands of visitors efficiently and with as little impact as possible to residents and commuters. Piers and the surrounding infrastructure will be refurbished, and the influx of tourists and sailing aficionados will bring a welcome boost to the economy. Event directors have already begun to settle into offices just blocks away from the waterfront, and it isn’t a moment too soon for planners and participants to look into housing in San Francisco (SF) or nearby Marin County.

With a proposed route that will skirt the SF waterfront from the Bay Bridge to Fisherman’s Wharf, Crissy Field, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, there will be plenty of public viewing spots in the City for the America’s Cup competition; but the prime real estate in the Bay Area for regat

ta-watching will be the high-rise condos looking out over the Bay in South Beach and the Bay-front homes of Russian Hill and the Marina where spectators can watch the events unfold in the comfort of their living rooms. San Francisco doesn’t, however, have a corner on all the excitement. Residents lucky enough to have waterfront homes in Sausalito or on the Tiburon Peninsula will have ringside seats for the America’s Cup competition. For residents and visitors that aren’t among the fortunate few, there will be public viewing at Cavallo Point on the Marin Headlands, near Fort Baker, which isn’t half bad; with the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline in the background, Cavallo Point offers a pretty good back-up plan. If however, you’ve been thinking about finally moving into your dream house, now might be the time. Contact Marin Modern Real Estate to discuss finding a prime piece of waterfront real estate in Sausalito, Belvedere, or Tiburon if you are interested it watching the world’s most exclusive yachting event from the privacy of your own deck.

Whether you are a resident of Marin or the Bay Area thinking about purchasing waterfront property, a regatta organizer needing to relocate, a member of a sailing team looking for comfortable accommodations for friends and family, or a yachting fan who follows the race, Marin Modern Real Estate, or its partner SF Modern, will be happy to help you find the perfect home, condo, or loft in SF or Marin County.
