I had never ridden a sailboat before, so I took a cruise on San Diego Bay aboard the USA-11. The crew allowed the passengers to assist with the sailing, or to just sit back and enjoy the tack'n'jibing through the scenic harbor waters. I didn't realize just how lucky I was until I got back home and told the story to friends and coworkers that own sailboats. Quoting one friend - "I am dripping with envy! I have a 16' sailboat. In my dreams I'd get on a boat like that, even for a three hour cruise!"
