The main viewing areas are along the San Francisco waterfront from the Golden Gate Bridge all the way to the Golden Gate Yacht Club. If you choose to be at the finish line at Pier 27 it is advised to be there early in the day. There are also other accessible points along the race course for viewing and they are posted on the website.
