Raced on the Canada II 12 meter facing yacht used during the 1987 America's Cup yacht races won by the US. Boats are really fast and nimble. We would highly recommend this activity to any visitor to Sint Maarten. Super experience.

We went today, and it was so much fun. The captain was great, and we all got to participate in sailing a former Americas cup racer.
