Had a great time sailing on USA 76 today. Excellent crew, everyone on the boat had a good time; this is an America’s Cup boat, so very different than other sailboats you may have been on. Anyone interested in sailing should give this a try.

Boat was cool, crew were good fun and relaxed. A great way to see San Fran from the water with a fun time on AC76.

It was really a thrill to be on, and help sail, such a high performance boat. The captain and crew were fantastic; personable, but also very professional and competent. You could do as little or as much as you wanted to in terms of helping...More
