Sail Stars & Stripes USA-11
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
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.

This was the best idea we had in San Diego. by sailing on this "America's Cup" boat for 3 hours, you can help crew or just sit back and relax. Lynn and Bea Hanna and ship's crew treat you like kings/queens. this really is the best event while visiting San Diego. A MUST WHILE YOU ARE IN SAN DIEGO AREA.

“A bargain at twice the price...”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

You will be saying the same when you are done. The crew was very engaging, my 72 year old mother loved it, she even steered the boat with a bunch of prodding from the crew. This was the best experience of the weekend, and we did a lot. The boat is beautiful, and well taken care of, and so are their guests, do not miss this, beer and wine when you are done, it doesn't get any better than that.

“Outstanding Outing!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We were in San Diego and looking for something great to do on Saturday for our small group of friends! So I went to Google and I entered "Absolute best thing to do in San Diego", Sail Stars and Stripes came up in the search window. I must say it was 100% correct! It was time well spent and we will do it again when we are back in the area. Captain Lynn Hanna and his very seasoned crew were absolutely great! Thank you! Thank YOU! You were super!

Really anoutstanding time and a great value. $100 to sail for 3 hours on an Amercia's Cup yacht, including time at the helm, working the grinders, etc.

Had a blast and really appreciated the insights of Captain Lynn and his crew.

Thanks again
