• Race Opportunities
Almost every weekend throughout the year and at least 4 days each week during summer you will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on, America’s Cup match-race (or two) on board our 80 Ft sailing yachts “Stars & Stripes” and “Abracadabra”. These races will often be scheduled in advance so that you know what to expect. There will be other occasions that the 2nd yacht is added later based on passenger demand. We also conduct ‘private’ charter trips and when possible and timely we will do our best to schedule your ‘public’ trip side-by-side with a private charter. This becomes a bonus for you and the private group…we can now deliver you the maximum event experience.

• The Action
This is an extension of our America’s Cup Daily Sail but with all of the excitement and close action that befits any ‘race’ situation. In this case we race head-to-head in the true America’s Cup fashion, just one yacht against the other, dog-fighting our way up and down the bay over a race course set to give you the maximum sailing experience. The yachts race very close under the watchful eyes of our professional crew, and your adrenaline levels run high. You’ll be amazed at the size of these yachts as you see the other pass so close that you’d like to reach out and touch it. Did you bring your camera? Set sail with us on San Diego bay for maximum thrills.

• Unique
San Diego is the only place in the USA with a pair of these recent generation 80 Ft International America’s Cup Class (IACC) yachts. That means this is the only place where you can participate and enjoy this race experience.
