Sailing on USA 76 was a great experience! The boat crew were very friendly and kept everyone involved the whole time! We learned a lot about racing strategy and sailing! I would recommend this to everyone who is interested in a hands on sailing experience.

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.

Awesome day sailing. Great views and explanations of the boat and how it works. Crew gets the passengers involved if you want to help out, including grinding, steering, and helping lift and put away the sails. Very fun...bring a jacket even if it's warm outside,...More
