San Francisco 2012 - In Their Own Words

"Summer in San Francisco is unique and the sailing from Treasure Island gets you to the race course in a very short period of time - no one else can offer that. The history of sailors from San Francisco and the support it gets is second to none. The membership of the St. Francis Yacht Club is as big as any in the nation. It has multiple medalists residing in the club and numerous world champions. The club has challenged for the America's Cup twice. All in all, sailing in San Francisco is the best in the world, because wind conditions are ideal everyday during the summer!"

    -Russ Silvestri, 1988 & 2000 Sailing
