I've been lucky enough to sail on the stars and stripes twice with Sail USA. The experience of the crew really shows as they navigate the boat with such precision! This is not an easy boat to sail, it takes a tremendous amount of teamwork! They make you feel like part of the team, letting you steer and work the grinders. As you cruise through the bay, you are surrounded by a wonderful backdrop of the San Diego skyline on one side and the pacific ocean on the other, simply outstanding!
