Adventure Cat Sailing Charters today announced its schedule of events for the America's Cup World Series races in San Francisco, running August 21-26, 2012. The catamaran sailing company, which hosts daily sailing excursions on the San Francisco Bay, is now selling $100 tickets for race-focused sailing events during the World Series festivities so patrons can get an exciting, on-the-water view of the action-filled competition.

The three-hour sails depart at 1:00 p.m. from Dock J at the famous Pier 39 and include two complimentary beverages and light hors d’oeuvres. Adventure Cat's comfortable, open-deck catamarans and unique sailing route offer fantastic views of the city's remarkable skyline and Golden Gate Bridge. During the World Series, the sailing route can be adjusted for optimal views of the race boats. Patrons can watch the race festivities from the safe, exterior deck with the waves splashing below, or sit and relax inside the protected cabin, with full windows to enjoy the sights.

"I've been a huge fan of the America's Cup since the 1980s and I've been hoping for this day for a long time, to have the races come home to San Francisco, right here in our own beautiful backyard," said Jay Gardner, president of Adventure Cat Sailing Charters and sailing enthusiast. Gardner, along with his wife, business partner and crew, built the company's first catamaran by hand in 1991, a 48-passenger, coast guard certified vessel which is still in operation today. "The natural terrain of the bay creates the perfect amphitheater-like stage for water-viewing, not to mention the sheer beauty of the area. All of these elements, coupled with the region's strong winds and ocean currents should make for a thrilling series of events, possibly even the best Cup yet. If it's really nuking out on the Bay, it could end up being a game of pure survival - the winner simply being the last boat standing."
