On March, 27, after nearly a year of negotiations, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a revised deal to bring the America’s Cup -- sailing's pre-eminent event -- to San Francisco in fall 2013.
The agreement finalizes the venues for the 34th America's Cup and calls for millions of dollars in pier and waterfront improvements in San Francisco. The event expected to draw more than 1 million spectators.
