SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The Port of San Diego is making a final push to host the America's Cup, including releasing a splashy video touting the bay as a perfect venue for so-called stadium sailing.
San Diego is competing with Bermuda, a British territory, to host the 35th America's Cup in 2017.
The video, posted online Wednesday, says organizers can count on a breeze of more than 8 knots on San Diego Bay 93 percent of the time to ensure a reliable TV schedule.
The next-generation America's Cup catamarans are expected to rise up on hydrofoils in single-digit wind speeds.
San Diego hosted the America's Cup in 1988, 1992 and 1995, with racing on the Pacific Ocean several miles off Point Loma.
A venue decision is expected before the end of the year.
