Yachts to promote America's Cup sail in SF Bay
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Two yachts the "America" and "USA 76" sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge Tuesday morning. The boats are meant to help promote the upcoming 2013 America's Cup yacht race in San Francisco.
"America" is a replica of the 139 foot yacht that beat the British in 1851 to win what became the America's Cup. The other yacht "USA 76" was the boat used by Larry Ellison's Oracle racing team in the run-up to their America's Cup winning race in 2010.
