Loads of fun on the 1992 Americas cup boat. Active participation with rigging and sailing this beautiful sail boat. The massive sail is impressive. The crew is great and goes the distance to make sure everyone has a good time.
I am a long time sailor of small boats so when I get a chance to go out on a classic big boat I jump. This boat was involved in the '92 America's cup. It's a racing machine and yet the ride on the water...More

Thanks for taking the time to provide an excellent review of our America's Cup experience. We enjoyed having you on board Stars & Stripes.

Be sure to arrive 30 minutes before the sail and take advantage of the history of the American Cup. You can tell that the Crew that works on the sail boat LOVES what they do. We took both our teenage sons (13 &16) they had...More

Thanks for taking the time to give future travelers an excellent overview of our venue. We hope to see you back on board one of our America's Cup racing yachts in the near future.
Four of us had a wonderful afternoon on Stars & Stripes USA-11. All of the crew and support staff were outstanding. We would recommend this without a doubt - it was the highlight of our week in San Diego. Bill, MaryLynn, Joe, and Peggy.
