Last year, when San Francisco won the bid to host the 2013 America's Cup, supporters saw it as a chance to revitalize the city's crumbling waterfront. Now, there are concerns that fundraising for this major international event is not proceeding quickly enough, and taxpayers could be left on the hook. What are the potential costs and benefits?

Guests:

Mark Buell, chair of the America's Cup Organizing Committee

Michael Martin, America's Cup project director in San Francisco's Office of Economic and Workforce Development

Aaron Peskin, chair of the San Francisco Democratic Party and former president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors

David Chiu, president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and supervisor for District 3

Joe Eskenazi, staff writer for SF Weekly and author of this week's cover story on the America's Cup
