If our sunset schedule does not suit your own agenda, please call anyway. A sail on one of my 80 Ft International America's Cup Class race yachts may be a great alternative.

Be part of the crew...pitch in and live your dream. Every day is a 'race' opportunity.

Don't delay   ...between the 2 yachts we fill 40 seats pretty fast through the summer. If you're here for a conference gather some of your business associates for this incredible match-race opportunity. They'll be glad you told them.

 San Diego is the only city in America where you can race on a current generation America's Cup yacht.

Yacht "AMERICA" and the 2 race yachts are available for corporate or private charter year round.

 Come ride with us on our beautiful yacht "AMERICA".

While I have raced the finest and fastest yachts all over the world it is an amazing treat that I have the most famous yacht of all....the 'AMERICA" now at home in my own back yard. I invite San Diegans and visitors alike to join us for our summer Blue Whale expeditions including the sunset as you return from the ocean to this beautiful bay. You'll not only enjoy the sunsets which in themselves can be spectacular, but I assure you that you too will fall in love with the sleek lines, the finely-varnished timbers, polished brass, fine teak decks and huge canvas sails that make this yacht a dream to sail upon.

  "AMERICA" is not only very beautiful but quite fast for a yacht of 139 Ft. While we may not always achieve her top speeds of 14 to 17 knots during a late afternoon San Diego sunset sail, you are guaranteed to be impressed by how smoothly she slides through the ocean while you sip a cocktail and take in the sights. Let's show you some of the sights:




This is also the very best San Diego Blue Whale Watching sail. Very few people will ever see a Blue Whale up close, but on our trips not only do we have the ability to approach quietly but as the largest sailing vessel in the area we are the most stable viewing platform of any boat. We even have a "No Seasickness Guarantee"....that is how confident we are that you will have an amazing time. Ask about our guarantee when you call.

If you are here on the right evening you may well find yourself in a race with any number of smaller craft gathering around to try their speed against the "AMERICA". Be assured that when you are a guest on this magnificent yacht that you are the center of attention on
San Diego Bay.

Some sunsets are pretty scary!

Others are just as amazing as the

experience itself.

Let's get back to the 2012 we also give you the opportunity to visit the famous "Maritime Museum of San Diego" of the worlds  finest collections of historic ships. These include the oldest active sailing ship afloat...the 'Star of India', plus pirate ships, cold war submarine and many other very interesting exhibits.

 We will provide some light snacks and beverages, you bring the beer & wine if you like or you can choose from our on-board bar. We'll give you a history of this famous yacht, the America's Cup and the status of the 'cup' competition as we know it today. You get to pitch in and help us raise the huge sails, take a turn at the helm, snap off as many lovely photographs as you like....and dwell in the amazing atmosphere that comes with sailing on a yacht so beautiful and so famous. It's called "bragging rights". Tell the family and neighbors when you get home....that you helped sail Dennis Conner's legendary "AMERICA". 

Did I mention....City lights?

What are you waiting for?
