Extreme Sailing Series by SAP - San Diego - 18 October - 21 October 2018
EXTREME SAILING SERIES SAN DIEGO – With the racing taking place just five metres from the shore of Harbor Island - near Shelter Island hotels, the man-made peninsula located close to Downtown San Diego hotels, the Series will return to the city for the penultimate Act of the season. Enjoying a very temperate climate, the Californian city of San Diego sees consistent breezes, making it a popular sailing spot for California and the rest of the west coast.
What time zone do I need to set my watch to? UTC-7
What will the weather be like?
Expect glorious sunshine with little chance of rain.
What should I see and do while I’m there? Balboa Park is far more than just a park and is one of San Diego’s greatest assets. The 1,200 acres is decorated with beautiful buildings and water features and with 17 museums and cultural centres, there is plenty to see and do. For a true taste of the Californian lifestyle head to Mission and Pacific Beaches. Visit one of the many hire shops and join the constant stream of skateboarders, in-line skaters, joggers and cyclists along the boardwalk or pick a spot on the beach and relax to the sound of crashing waves.
What traditional delicacies should I try? Although not the most nutritious snack, the California burrito is part of the San Diego experience. This take on a Mexican classic consists of carne asada, cheese, sour cream and French fries, rolled in a flour tortilla.
Any interesting facts? Located in San Diego, 32nd Street Naval Station is the largest United States Navy base and the top employer in the city. When watching the racing keep an eye out for military jets and helicopters taking off from the runway in the background.
