Having traveled to San Diego many times in the past few years, the trip on the USA-11 is one of the most fun and memorable activities in the area. The boat is beautiful, well maintained and has a fun crew. We spent about three hours racing around San Diego bay with beautiful views of downtown San Diego. It was also amazing to get up close with some of the Navy facilities in the area - sailing next to the massive ships, seeing the dolphin training facilities.
The boat is gorgeous, fast and very smooth on the water. There is a fantastic crew who takes care of everything and gets you in on the action of running the boat - pulling up sails, tacking, driving. You really get the sense of what it is like to be part of a major sailboat race. During the sail, there are snacks and drinks. After the sail, everyone heads back to the marina for beer and to look at the pictures taken throughout the day. Afterwards, they even share the link to the pictures.
My wife and I went on this trip and I would highly recommend as something fun for couples, friends or families with older kids (younger kids might get bored). I highly recommend sailing with Lynn and his crew and we will definitely be back again in the future.
