America’s Cup 2013 with Empress Events
Empress was the official VIP Yacht for the America’s Cup 2013 Challenger Emirates New Zealand Team. And what an exciting series of final races we witnessed on the beautiful San Francisco Bay during September 2013. The amazing 72 by 48 foot catamaran yachts were able to achieve speeds of up to 53 mph. From the decks of the Empress Yacht, as they literally flew past us, we had a front row view of these cutting edge sailing machines and of the exhilarating speed created by the enormous 131 ft. sails. Against the dramatic backdrop of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and landmarks such as Alcatraz, this America’s Cup was truly an unforgettable experience.
