They won't have a choice. The Coast Guard permits have been issued etc. The AC is at the end of its allotted use of the Bay.

Update:

According to several posters on Sailing Anarchy, the St. Francis Yacht Club and the Rolex Big Big Boat Series have agreed to allow an AC race to occur on Thursday if necessary.
