Mayor Gavin Newsom may want to host America's Cup but the rest of the City still needs convincing.
At the heart of the latest request in the quest to bring the cup to San Francisco, is a plan to host the main public facilities for the regatta on the City's waterfront between Piers 19 and 29.
The original plan had the facilities on the other side of the Bay Bridge but city officials believe that shifting the facilities up the Embarcadero will help cut the cost for San Francisco.
But the budget committee said it needs more information before it can vote on whether to approve the plan and move it to the full board for its approval.
