A group of friends and I booked SAIL USA in August of this year. We sailed on the Stars and Stripes, Dennis Connor's America's Cup boat. It was truly a great experience. The crew was friendly, relaxed and made us feel welcome. We were so welcome, that we got to help hoist the sails, man the cranks for the jib and give S&S a steer. We had excellent weather during San Diego's chilly summer and the wind gave us a great ride. Our excursion took us around San Diego bay, allowing us to get a great tour of the place and watch all the US Navy ships buzzing about. The only regret we had was that we couldn't exit the bay and get the spinnaker going! The wind was perfect for that. Next time we'll arrange for a private outing. I can highly recommend the crew. The price was right, the weather was great, the experience unique and the crew very professional. I can highly recommend this to anyone who wants a unique San Diego outing. My only tip is that you give yourself enough time to arrive in time to make the boat. The Marina can be difficult to find if you don't know your way around the area. Failing that, call Marnie and have her give you the scoop.
