Overview
More
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.

Don't expect to be allowed to grind the winches if you are female. The men got to do it and a few of the women got a brief chance. I suppose the men have better money or something. It was a huge disappointment. I even...More

As an authentic America's Cup racing yacht, there are no bathrooms, beds, galleys or other conveniences on board. Just a marine head for emergencies.

The average high in March is 66 with about 1.5 inches of rain for the month. Last March, we sailed 18 times and had 1 day rained out. You should dress in layers as it will be cool in the shade and warm in the sun.
