About This Experience

General Information hide

Experience a memorable two-hour Sunset Sail on a living piece of yachting history— the streamlined America's Cup racing yacht the Stars and Stripes. Set sail out of Hilton Head Island and enjoy this amazing scenic sail.

The Sail America Foundation commissioned four 12 metre yachts to support a campaign lead by Dennis Conner, representing the San Diego Yacht Club, to win back the America's Cup in the 1987 competition in Fremantle, Australia. This racing machine features an 85-foot-tall mast. She is solid, fast and features two steering wheels and a wide cockpit where you and your guest along with four other passengers and the crew will control her speed and high performance. Throughout this South Carolina Sailing Adventure, your Captain and crew guide you as you help trim the sheets and grind the winches!

Once you’re out on the open water, you will enjoy breathtaking sunset views! Whether you are looking for a unique sailing adventure or a unique gift, this America's Cup Sailing on the Stars and Strips is the perfect experience.
