If you want a comfortable, interesting, exciting sailing trip in San Diego, this is the trip. You can participate in the operation of the sail as much or as little as you wish. It's your choice, however, I found it exciting to participate in the "grinding" and the steering as it is easy and a fun experience. Also, Bee Hanna is extremely knowledgable and points out interesting facts about things you will see on this trip almost to the Coronado Bridge. The crew is helpful and friendly. Snacks and hot/cold beverages are offered. Before and after the sail, you will gather in their office to learn about their sailing ship. Bee takes wonderful videos and photographs that you can download from the link she will email you. I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for an outdoor, beautiful, fun trip on San Diego' beautiful sailing waters.

We had a lovely sail. Light breeze but S&S got up to 13 Kts.! Lots of time at the helm. Very nice people. Great for experienced sailors and beginners too!

We have sailed extensively around various parts of the world. This was by far the best crew and experience ever. Lynn the captain made everyone feel absolutely at home and involved on this afternoon sail. We got some good wind and some serious sailing in and a warm and friendly crew.

We booked a team building event on the Stars & Stripes and it was fantastic! Lynn & Bee are such sweet awesome people and they and their crew gave us such a wonderful experience. First Bee gave a great presentation of the history of the America's Cup, which was very interesting and informative. Then after we set sail, everyone in our group worked together sailing the boat, from grinding the gears, winching the sails and even actually steering the boat! A very hands on experience. The boat was very smooth and not rocky at all, so no need to worry about getting seasick or wet. Bee took great pictures and video the whole time, and watching them back in the office was a lot of fun for everyone. She sent the link so others at my company could see as well. People at my work are still talking about it. I highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to have a fun and unique experience in San Diego!
