Though the 34th annual America's Cup may still be two years away, planning has already begun. A partnership with charter agency Fraser Yachts will change the face of the race.

With it's side network of charter yachts, Fraser plans to create a "stadium" using charter vessels to outline the race. Patrick Coote, marketing director of Fraser Yachts, says, "Superyacht owners, charterers and their guests will now be able to benefit from 'front row seats,' just yards from the world's top sailors and their fight for victory."
A dramatic and animated imagining of such an event can be found on the America's Cup Web site.
San Francisco may just become the next hot megayacht destination.
