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

Took a sail to celebrate a birthday and couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience! The crew was very knowledgeable and passionate about sailing and took the time to get everyone involved with the experience. If you're looking for a great view of the bay paired with a great team-building experience look no further.

As a sailor, this experience had been high on my list for some time, and it did not disappoint! It was a great experience for both total sailing novices and competitive sailors alike. A great way to see San Diego!

What a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The excitement of the crew was contagious! The sailing itself was breath taking but the crew definitely made it a learning experience, very knowledgeable, friendly and eager to share their experiences.

Coming from a motor racing background, I used to think sailing/racing looked boring. After my experience with the Stars & Stripes crew I have learned a new appreciation at the dedication and skill that it takes.

Awesome time and will recommend the adventure to my friends and family.

We were sad that our sail on May 14th had to be cancelled but we were given plenty of notice by email and the refund was on my credit card when I got home. We will try to sail on another visit in the future

We sailed with Captain Lynn and crew this spring and had an amazing experience! Our original sail was canceled due to high seas, but they graciously took our group out on their day off and could not have been nicer. We all helped crew and everyone had their turn at the wheel. The sail was preceded by a short lecture about the history of the America's Cup, which was great and helped placed our experience in the context of the event. I cannot recommend this experience enough - it's a must when you are in San Diego!
