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 my team out for an afternoon on Stars and Stripes and couldn't have had more fun. Great boat, great crew, great team building event. My team came from the four corners of the globe including Singapore, China, Japan, Europe and the US for a meeting and this trip. We all had a great time helping with the sails and taking the helm, and the pictures and videos were amazing! Highly recommend this trip!

Wow - what a great day! I cannot recommend this enough, whether you are an experienced sailor or just out for a bit of sightseeing. The yacht is well equipped, there is plenty of room and if you want to get involved you can, winching, looking out, steering or just giving the crew some banter! Or you can sit back, relax and watch the beauty of San Diego go by. The crew are super fun and friendly and ensured we had a fun and safe day.

This is a day and an experience you won't forget!

As a sailor I appreciate a well maintained vessel and great crew. Stars & Stripes USA-11 was a wonderful 3 hour sail preceded by a great orientation and history of the boat. My brother and I had great fun grinding the jib winch and handling the helm for a short period. This is a great value and the pictures provided at no additional cost are an added incentive. I highly recommend this to sailors and non-sailors alike.

Our team of 15 took a sail with Stars & Stripes for a team-building activity and had a blast! We all had a chance to turn the wenches and steer the boat- which was an amazing experience. It made you really appreciate both the beauty of San Diego and the coordinated effort it takes to manage a boat like the ones that race in America's Cup. The staff was excellent! Stars & Stripes even provided a photographer at no extra cost and treated us to beer & wine after the sail to enjoy the slideshow.

Went here on a Saturday, was great two hours long. Boat holds 18 people and we all got to be apart of the experience , from driving to bringing up and down the sails ! This is something I would do again we had a 8 and 11 year old and they loved it .
