Whether a sailing family or not, you can not miss this. Lynn and Bea, husband and wife team, and the rest of the crew make it easy and fun ! As a sailor, you won't believe the history of the Sport they know in detail or that you were at the helm of an America's cup racing boat. As a tourist, great views and an experience only you can get from a sleek sail boat on San Diego Bay !

What an awesome experience. The crew is incredibly knowledgable about sailing and the history of the America's Cup races. Would highly recommend spending the afternoon on this historic boat.

Were you glued to your TV watching the America's Cup? Did you get goosebumps when you heard the creaking of the rigging, flapping sails, grinding of the winches and lean to one side as these magnificent yachts raced for the cup? WELL, you can't miss out on this opportunity to experience it first hand. Lynn and his crew are a great team--friendly, accommodating and fun to be around. They sincerely love this sport and want their guests to enjoy every moment. You will not leave disappointed.

We watched the beautiful boat speed past us on Shelter Island and thought it would be fun to go out on the boat. What a fun afternoon! The crew were very helpful and polite. They had interesting facts to share about the bay and surrounding sights. So relaxing - the best way to see San Diego Bay with the quiet breeze filling the sails and the Stars and Stripes fluttering on the stern. Highly recommend ! The brief video presentation starts about 30 minutes prior to sailing and was very informative.

We had a family reunion in San Diego and this was one of our many activities. This was my favorite event BY FAR. I never dreamed in my wildest dreams that I would get to "drive" an America's Cup boat. The crew were all very engaging and pleasant to talk with (most are volunteers). Everyone takes turns at the helm. Everyone gets a chance to grind the sheets. If you don't want to get involved, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride on a HUGE sailboat. Don't miss the 30-minute history lesson before sailing. I'll do this event every time I return to San Diego in the future. Thanks Bee, Capt. Mark, and crew for a little slice of heaven.
