Get a look at the world’s fastest sailing yachts

The world's fastest racing yachts are coming into town this weekend for the America’s Cup World Series, and you'll be able to catch them up close and personal starting tomorrow afternoon. While the big event won't start until Saturday, the series' fleet of high-tech carbon fiber catamarans will participate in practice runs tomorrow afternoon from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. For those who miss the practice races, there will be plenty of other activities to catch throughout the evening. The best place to catch the racing will be at Navy Pier. But if you're lucky and have a friend docked at DuSable Harbor, the views may be even better.
