Overview
If you're a sailing enthusiast, don't miss the chance to set sail on a racing yacht in San Francisco, and cruise the course from the 2013 America’s Cup aboard a ship that actually sailed the race. With this experience, follow your captain's lead as you help with sail trim controls, try your hand at the helm, or just let the crew whisk around so you can enjoy the sights.

What an EPIC day. Our 3 crew, Sean, John, and Peter were professional, safe and approachable. They provided us a fantastic sail on San Francisco Bay. The crew encouraged everyone to take a turn steering or grinding the winches to raise and lower the sails. We sailed out into

Fast boat, exciting sail, great crew. Go do it now. You need to be somewhat adventurous and able to stand at angles when the boat heels over. It is like being able to test drive a ferrari on a track!

Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. I wish I had brought warmer clothing, but there were spares on board to borrow. It was delightful getting to help crank up the sail and steer for a bit. I got good answers to all of my questions.
