This is a chance to be part of sailing an America's Cup class racing yacht of the 12 meter days. The opportunity to not only grind, but to also drive this wonderful boat, should not be missed. We were 13.5 knots at one point. The love of the crew for Stars and Stripes was palpable. The weather was perfect. As one crew member said on our return, "if you didn't have fun today, then sailing is not for you!" For me, if you have sailed a lot, a little, or never even thought about sailing, you will have an experience you will always remember and want to do again.
