“Fantastic Event for Clients!”

We rented the boat for a sailing event with clients/potential clients at a trade show. What a terrific event. Everyone got to participate as much as they wanted to. It was a lot of fun helping raise the sails and taking turns taking the wheel. The crew was engaging, the weather perfect and everyone kept talking about it the rest of our time in San Diego. Definitely a highlight and great way to build relationships doing a fun afternoon activity.

“Awesome day on San Diego Bay!”

What a phenomenal day on San Diego Bay with the America’s Cup Stars and Stripes today! Lynn and Bee and the crew are terrific hosts and historians of the America’s Cup.  It was a hands on experience with the most spectacular weather possible. We hit 12-15 knots for most of the sail and enjoyed meeting people from all over the US. Will highly recommend to all we know!


“Highlight of our trip to San Diego”

Enjoyed being part of the “crew” and experiencing the handling and speed of the boat. Of the many sail boats we have been on this was one of the best. Not only did we enjoy sailing but also the view of the city and harbor including Navy ships .


“A Wonderful Holiday Sail”

I took my brothers, niece and her boyfriend on the Stars and Stripes just before Christmas. Everyone thought it was just the best adventure. The history discussion of the America’s Cup before the sail was very interesting. The sail was well organized and fun; everyone got to be at the helm. The photos, which are included in the price, were excellent. What a great day!
