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.

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!

Sailing today on Stars and Stripes was everything you can imagine for a day of sailing. The crew was polite, informative, and friendly. Throughout the sail they give everyone an opportunity to truly experience sailing this amazing yacht while a photographer captures the day on film. Although I went on this sail alone while my husband was racing in the... More

We had a beautiful 3 hour sail around San Diego bay in what is called the "Ferrarri of yachts." The crew could not have been nicer. I was surprised that we were the only San Diego couple on board. Others came from all over: Boston, Canada, Sweden etc. It was a glorious day and for those who wanted some hands... More

Had a great time. Everybody was very friendly. Crew passed out snacks and drinks throughout the sail which was a great idea. Have a better appreciation for sailing now.

We had a FABULOUS day sailing with the Stars & Stripes!! Our crew was skilled and experienced, and gracious and patient with those of us who are novices. Seeing San Diego from the Harbor was a real treat. A MUST DO for everyone!! And we will definitely be back!!

The Sail Stars & Stripes is a best in class boat. The crew is awesome, always taking care of all details to make you feel a special best. The day was perfect, good winds, we reached 10knots!, sun, and a lot of good vibrations coming from the perfect scenario. After 3 hours of perfect sailing there is a debrief session... More

I chartered the USA-11 for a corporate event. This was fantastic. We were blessed with beautiful, 80 degree weather and sunny skies, and every one of my guests thoroughly enjoyed the event. Days later, they are still recounting the "work" they did on-board the boat. Captain Lynn and his crew go all out to make it a great experience. Every... More

I am a repeat customer on the Stars & Stripes USA - 11. The first time out was quite exciting, especially when we reached 11.9 kt. The recent sail was with two girlfriends who were equally thrilled with the adventure. I highly recommend you add this to your list of "must-dos" when in the San Diego area.

A good friend was in town and over the years we have done a lot of sailing on his 22' sailboat in upstate NY. A sail on the Stars and Stripes was a must. The winds were strong that day and there were many other boats out on the bay. The 10 man crew were professionals, helpful and a lot... More
