Description: Public and private 3 hour sailing charters aboard the authentic 1992...
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. You are welcome to bring your own camera, but a crew member will be taking complimentary photos & videos of all the action on board 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.

Called Ross to book my family of 4 for a day as a surprise. Unfortunately there were some circumstances that necessitated our cancelling the trip. Ross was the best - understanding, accommodating, and fully refunded our money. A rare find these days! Hopefully next time it all comes together for us.

A group of 4 women from Texas took this trip not realizing how much fun we would have! Learning the history of sailing and the America's Cup lead up to the highlight of our trip! Beautiful boat. Professional staff.

The whole experience was amazing! Customer service was impeccable and everyone on the crew was courteous and happy to assist with anything needed. One warning, if you have young children remember that bathroom facilities on a racing boat ARE limited to non existent. Plan accordingly!

What an incredible experience!! The boat is gorgeous and so beautifully maintained. The crew were all so friendly, funny and very informative. We could participate as much or as little in the actual sailing of the ship...grinding, steering the boat etc! Beautiful views from the water of the spectacular bay. You always see pics of sailboats gliding through the water... More

Had a blast the entire time. Taking a ride on this one of a kind, 72 foot, America's cup boat is a once in a life time opportunity. Though, even on a smaller vessel I would give this crew five stars. They are remarkably friendly and absolutely hilarious with hospitality that will knock you off your feet. Everyone got a... More

We had a great experience with the Stars & Stripes this weekend! The crew was very professional and provided great directions while we were sailing. We had limited experience on sail boats before this excursion. The views while in the San Diego Bay were amazing and we will remember this trip for a long time.

Step aboard for a ride you will never forget! Everything about this experience was incredible. Greeted at the office by warm and welcoming people, they provide a presentation of the history America's Cup and the ship, including interesting details on its construction.
