San Francisco ain’t cheap, but neither is the America’s Cup. And it seems some of our European pals are getting a little creative in their attempts to keep their Cup hopes alive while they contest the ACWS. It’s hard to imagine that these guys can send out e-mails like the below and still afford to build an AC-72, but then again, we’ve learned never to be surprised by our French friends (yes, this did come from Energy). Props to SF’s Curbed for the snark.
I am looking for housing an professional sailracing team to SFC for the month of August, and another period from Sept/Oct. We are 11-13 ppl with a ok Budget. But it is almost impossible to get a rental house in the SF Area that isnt 40min away from the Piers for short term and under 10k! I have been using all the websites VRBO / craigslist / Tripadvisor/ corporate housing.
We are trying to get something near the Piers so our travel time isnt too long to the base, sailors and shore crew can have different schedules. Also be in the nice city of SFC, us the local services (food, laundry, hardware store, groceries) and not somewhere in Alameda or Pacifica like other teams. Any tips, any real estate agents that deal mainly with temporary rents?
