Touchdown - the America's Cup arrives in San Francisco

It's here!  The America's Cup has landed in SFO - despite slightly foggy conditions - and will proceed to it's new home at the Golden Gate Yacht Club for a reception with club members and special guests on Friday evening.

While the trophy held pride of place in its first class seat, it's been a long trip for the people travelling with it. The day started early in Valencia, with an 0600 departure to Frankfurt, via Madrid.

But all the flights left on time, and the Cup arrived in San Francisco on schedule.
