Alameda Sun: Artemis Club Based in Alameda for America’s Cup Races, May 31, 2012


With summer fast approaching, the city of Alameda and the rest of the Bay Area are starting to get America's Cup fever.

Recently, reports of families in the Bay Area renting out their homes to tourists traveling to watch the preliminary races, taking place from August to October, have surfaced.

While some tourists will be setting up in Bay Area homes for the two-month race, one racing team participating in the preliminaries will be housed in Alameda as they set up for the race.
