Owner description: Public and private 3 hour sails aboard Stars & Stripes USA-11, the authentic 1992 America's Cup racing yacht sailed by Dennis Conner. 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 flat screen TV. The photos & videos will then be posted on Google Web Albums for free access and use. The total cost (no additional taxes or fees) of $125 for adults & $75 for children (5-18) is the best value and most exciting venue on San Diego Bay.
Useful Information: Activities for older children

Arranged for an outing on Stars & Stripes as part of a weekend firm meeting. We had a mix of experience -- some had never been on a sailboat before. All had a great time. The boat is exceptional and sailing on her a unique experience, but the captain and crew really made the trip special. Very attentive to the group, and the fun they have sailing this remarkable boat is infectious. Next time we're coming back with the family.

The Start & Stripes is not only a memorable beauty to see. To sail it in the San Diego bay at a wind of ± 20 knots is an incredible experience. The boat cuts through the water like a knife through butter. And when you want to participate you can. Great boat. Great crew. Love to do it again.

This was a great day on the water. :) The crew was very experienced, courteous, freindly and knowledgeable. They made the day. The boat, the beautiful Stars and Stripes USA Sail 111 was a joy to be on. Sailing on an Americals cup boat will be a trip we remember for a long time.

I'd recommend this for anyone. Exciting and unique! Super cool!

The yacht was in great shape. Very smooth sailing because of it's size. Felt fast and nimble. The crew was the best part. Very friendly and attentive. Would let you join in and work if you wished or just sit and enjoy the ride.

AMAZING boat. This is a full throttle sailing experience without the pain and suffering of owning a boat. We were blasting by even the fanciest boats under 7000 sq ft of sail. As involved or relaxing as you wish. You know its a cool thing when other boaters are taking pictures of you!
