First of all we could not have had a better weather day than Saturday Sept. 5th. US11 is a fairly old boat, but as racing sailboats go, still the Ferrari of the bay and a thrill to be aboard! The captain and crew could not have been nicer or more accommodating. This is a must do for visitors or locals, hardcore sailors or non boaters. As soon as we got off the boat we vowed to do it again.

If you haven't ever been sailing, there is no better way to go sailing than on an America's Cup sailboat around San Diego bay. This boat is amazingly fast and incredibly smooth. Before you go out on the boat they give you a short history of the America's Cup race. Then you go sailing for 3 hours around San Diego bay with an opportunity to grind the winches and captain the boat. A great way to see San Diego from the water!

This is the way to see San Diego Harbor. Totally delightful and fun and the crew makes you feel like one of the team. The boat is gorgeous and comfortable, in spite of being built as a racing yacht. There is an interesting history discussion before the trip starts. It is very fun to zoom around the bay, tacking and jibing and feeling like a part of it all. Best part for me is Linn and Bee, who take good care, allow everyone to try steering and cranking the lines and are a wealth of information. Highly Highly Recommended!

Okay folks ever want to sail in one of the worlds fastest race boats. You can do it here with style. Family freindly sail on San Diego Bay. Ever want to man the helm of one of the fastest race boats in the world, you can do it on Stars and Stripes. Great crew and fantastic views of San Diego Bay. It was on my bucket list and it did not disapoint. I will remember this experience for the rest of my life. Photos of your 3 hour sail are included, On our sail they took 340 stills and video. Do not hesitate its the real deal. Thanks to the owners and crew for a great experience.
