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.

We have the required US Coast Guard off-shore life jacket Type 1 PFD for persons weighing more than 90 pounds. It would probably not fit anyone over about a 250 pounds.

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.
