New Zealand Not Happy With America's Cup

New, 1 comment

A proposal by America's Cup organizers to have teams' hospitality tents placed on the Marina Green instead of on Piers 30-32 as originally proposed, (and, oh yeah, the teams now have to pay for them themselves) have made some teams very unhappy. The sailing team from New Zealand issued a press release calling the changes "irresponsible," "scandalous" and "another let down for San Francisco." Convenient, they say, that the changes would have no affect on Oracle Team USA team, whose operational base is on San Francisco's Pier 80. Officials have responded that the proposed move was for the fans, since all of the race action was taking place near the Marina Green. [SF Business Times/Previously on Curbed SF]
