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 $120 for adults & $60 for children (18 & under) is the best value and most exciting venue on San Diego Bay.

Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime experience. We got a great discount and my husband and his dad loved everything and every minute of this AMAZING voyage. Ask tour operators which day and time the boats are racing each other. EXCITING time, not to be missed.

Lovely way to sorbs a few hours sailing in this amazing boat. Crew and initial presentation brief were so interesting and informative. Great way to see the bay and very pleasant and relaxing! Not too crowded either. The on board drinks and snacks were great. Really enjoyed the trip would definitely recommend

I had previously sailed with them on a corporate outing, and wanted my family to experience it as well. My three boys (ages 17, 15, and 13) admitted they were not really looking forward to sailing, but couldn't stop talking about it afterward. They enjoyed the history of the yacht, America's Cup, the sheer mass of the sails, and really... More

Whether a sailing family or not, you can not miss this. Lynn and Bea, husband and wife team, and the rest of the crew make it easy and fun ! As a sailor, you won't believe the history of the Sport they know in detail or that you were at the helm of an America's cup racing boat. As a... More

Were you glued to your TV watching the America's Cup? Did you get goosebumps when you heard the creaking of the rigging, flapping sails, grinding of the winches and lean to one side as these magnificent yachts raced for the cup? WELL, you can't miss out on this opportunity to experience it first hand. Lynn and his crew are a... More

We watched the beautiful boat speed past us on Shelter Island and thought it would be fun to go out on the boat. What a fun afternoon! The crew were very helpful and polite. They had interesting facts to share about the bay and surrounding sights. So relaxing - the best way to see San Diego Bay with the quiet... More

We had a family reunion in San Diego and this was one of our many activities. This was my favorite event BY FAR. I never dreamed in my wildest dreams that I would get to "drive" an America's Cup boat. The crew were all very engaging and pleasant to talk with (most are volunteers). Everyone takes turns at the helm.... More
