Nancy and I got VIP passes at Club 45 compliments of Charles Schwab for the America's Cup World Series races. It was awesome! We bathed in Moet Chandon, ate like kings and got a photo with the old mug. The fleet racing was our favorite part. Seeing all the boats charge into the first mark was fantastic. Once the boats were out of view we could duck into Club 45, replenish our glasses, and watch the live TV coverage. When the boats returned to windward, we would head out to the deck for the next rounding.
They are going to have a similar format in October during fleet week. I have an image in my head of the boats screaming across the bay with Blue Angels over head doing the same. We will miss all the action in October because we'll be in route to San Diego for the start of the 2012 Baja Haha.
18 days and until departure......
