Public and private 3 hour sails aboard Stars & Stripes USA-11, the authentic 1992 America's Cup racing yacht sailed by Dennis Conner. Take the helm, grind the winches, or just hang on as this amazing high performance racer zips around San Diego Bay at twice the speed of the average sailboat. A truly unique and memorable experience. Soft drinks, water, peanuts, & pretzels are provided at no cost. You are welcome to bring your own camera, but a crew member will be taking complimentary photos & videos of all the action on board as well as the sights of San Diego Bay. After the sail, complimentary refreshments are served while viewing the days activities on our flat screen TV. The photos & videos will then be posted on Google Web Albums for free access and use. The total cost (no additional taxes or fees) of $125 for adults & $75 for children (5-18) is the best value and most exciting venue on San Diego Bay.

This is the best adventure experience in San Diego. Well worth your time. San Diego, the home of Dennis Conner and port of call for two America's Cup races, has this amazing boat from the 1992 campaign. The boat is big, impressive, and staffed with first class sailors. The bay tour is extensive and a lot of fun.

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... More

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.
