    Here are a few of my America's Cup photos: Of course nearly all of them were taken *before* I took the class. At least there are nine or more AC races plus the Red Bull series remaining. Anyone else have photos to share? Cheers, Steve

    What is the best place to stand to get America's cup photos?

    or cancel

    Anywhere along the waterfront where you can get a clear shot of the course. Course maps are available at All areas will get crowded so getting there early is important. From there, if you want to shoot the start or upwind mark-roundings then try Chrissy Field just north of St Francis YC. For the first mark and some of mid-course try for somewhere along the jetty that goes to Golden Gate YC. For mid-course try Marina Green, Aquatic Park Pier, Pier 39. The north-/mid-course areas offer better opportunities for Alcatraz backgrounds. If you get space at the rail at America's Cup park you can get close-ups of the finish. Try different spots for each day - they all have something different to offer and none will let you see the whole course.
