Owner description: Public and private 3 hour sailing charters aboard the authentic 1992 America's Cup racing yacht, Stars & Stripes USA-11. Take the helm, grind the winches, or just hang on as this amazing high performance racer zips around San Diego Bay at twice the speed of the average sailboat. A truly unique and memorable experience. Soft drinks, water, peanuts, & pretzels are provided at no cost. Bring your owns cameras, but a crew member will be taking photos & videos of on board activities as well as the sights of San Diego Bay. After the sail, complimentary refreshments are served while viewing the days activities on our large screen monitor. The photos & videos will then be posted on Picasa Web Album for free access and use. The total cost of $100 for adults & $50 for children (18 & under) is the best value and most exciting venue on San Diego Bay.

Had a great time. Everyone got to grind the sails and steer the boat. Captain and Crew were wonderful.

Could not say enough about the great afternoon we had sailing the San Diego bay. Our family had an outstanding time. The crew and team do a great job to ensure you have a fun day. Everyone gets a chance to participate in the various roles on the boat if they want to. Moreover, the team wants to make sure... More

The perfect way to experience luxury on the water. If you know your boats you will quickly fall in love with this 92' challenger, Stars&Stripes. Even if you don't know boats you will quickly learn that this sailboat is full of history, which makes it that much more special. Competing in the 92' WorldCup this is the cream of the... More

Our family was looking for something unique to do over the holiday week, and we found it! Over the years of visiting San Diego, we have visited the zoo, Sea World, and the wild animal park many, many times. But now the kids are 20somethings, we wanted something different. The boat was beautiful, and the crew was the BEST! Funny... More

We booked the tour as a gift to my parents for the holiday. I was looking for something unique. My parents sail/cruise and I had grown up watching my dad watch the America's Cup races. I had high expectations for the trip and the crew of the Stars and Stripes did not disappoint. The crew greets you with a brief... More

We stepped aboard Stars and Stripes, USA 11 the day after Christmas 2014 to join others on the Public Sail. It was a classic blue sky , sunny San Diego Day and as we backed away from the slip the captain sounded several long blasts of the horn to warn others in the yacht basin that we were under way....

When my family came to visit for the holidays and wanted to do something "San Diego," my mind turned to the beautiful sailboat I often see plying the waters of San Diego bay. Stars and Stripes did not disappoint -- it was a great way to spend an afternoon with my family and show them San Diego from a different... More

Sail USA-11 is a wonderful experience. The boat is in perfect condition, the crew is very knowledgeable, and there is nothing like being on the water, going 10 knots, seeing San Diego Bay. Highly recommended for folks of any age. The boat is very stable - no worries about getting wet or feeling uncomfortable. Thanks Captain Lynn and crew!
