The owner/ captain is a great person. Very focused on customer experience. Everybody on the boat had a great time. This is a well worth it boat ride. The crew is great.
BTW- the crew are all volunteers. They work for your tip. The tip jar might be disguised as a beer fund. Treat them well. They work for your good time.

if you ever dreamed of driving a formula one car this is your chance to drive the best of the best sailing boat, the winner of America's Cup!!!
Captain Lynn Hanna, his wife, and the crew are the most gracious hosts. They make sure that everyone is having a good time and feeling great.
The views of San Diego are unique from the water.
If you are visiting with your business partners or your family, this is an experience not to be missed.

My family sailed competitively for 20+ years ... this was a thrill to be on a vintage Americas Cup competitor ... still wish they would return to this era.

This is not just a regular sailing experience. This is speed, exhilaration, and a real feel of the ocean. All of the crew, from the captain, to crew, to front office, are exceptionally skilled at what they do and all have great people skills without being intrusive. The three hours tend to go quickly, and you get a great view of downtown San Diego, Point Loma and the Bay. Everyone gets to take a turn at the helm to wheel the ship if you so choose, and/or act as one of the "grinders". This is one of the traditional America's Cup racing vessels from the 1990's. This was our second trip in two years, and worth the cost. Great for families as well as couples, and for every Captain " Jack and Jacqueline Sparrow" member of your family!

Dreams come true when you board that boat! Amazing, friendly and proffesional crew, 13kn under sail, San Diego sun and wind, and opportunity to sail this beauty- nothing gets better
Practical tip- if you are not sailor, don't be put off by the pictures - this boat sails like a dream: smooth,cuts through waves like knife through butter. It is a great way to fall in love with sailing! Many thanks to Owners and Crew- you are doing fantastic job! Dziekuje

Thanks for a wonderful review and we're so happy that it was the top thing you did in California. We have been told so many times that Stars & Stripes is the best sailing experience in San Diego.
