If the America's Cup yacht race comes to San Francisco in 2013, it will probably be held at the South Beach piers between Pier 30 and Pier 50.

The America's Cup winner gets to pick where the next race will be held.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison's BMW-Oracle racing team has decided San Francisco will be the only U.S. city in the running against four European cities.

San Francisco officials picked the South Beach piers over other local contenders including Treasure Island and the waters near the Bay Bridge.
