I just got home from sailing on the Stars and Strips, Sail USA 11, a retired Americas Cup racing boat, and wow, what a fun time! The boat is quick, and slices through the water, no problems with rolling or sea sickness, due to most of the weight of the boat being at the bottom of the massive keel, under water. The crew was extremely friendly, like they had known you your whole life. You have your choice of just sitting back and enjoying the ride and the scenery, or taking a turn steering the boat, and you can help run the grinding winches to trim the sails to turn the boat (and does this thing turn on a dime! I was amazed that such a large boat could turn so nimbly -- it's like a sports car on water!). I highly recommend you take a ride on the Stars and Strips Sail USA 11, when visiting San Diego (or if you live here, like me!).
