This is a great opportunity to see the amazing 72 foot America's Cup boats up close at a Fleet Parade of more than 40 boats including the big ones.

Date: Friday, July 5

Time: 11:00 am. The parade starts at Pier 14 and ends at the host club - the Golden Gate Yacht club. Even on a weekday, I expect that there will be a very large crowd so I am planning to arrive early to get a parking space and viewing spot. The boats are tentatively scheduled to arrive at the Yacht club at 11:45 am.

This is a Free, Hosted Meetup event.

Here is a map of the area:

The meeting point is in front of the Golden Gate Yacht club. As always, the key is to arrive early. Figure number 1 is the road leading in which will be closed for this event. Best parking is at "Park 2" but again, go early to get a spot. There is a cafe there where you can buy a snack or drink.

Number 3 is the parking area in back of the Palace of Fine Arts. Now that the Exploratorium has moved out, there should be some parking available there.

Be careful about street parking since there is a 2 hour time limit.
