We arranged for a private charter with Capt. Lynn Hanna aboard the Stars & Stripes USA-11 last Wednesday, May 16th. It was an absolutely perfect day for sailing San Diego harbor, with sunny skies and 10 to 15 knots of wind. The boat is a pristine America's Cup race boat, sailed by Dennis Connor himself in the Challenger Cup in 1992. Everything about the boat was in perfect condition, and the crew was helpful, friendly, and very professional. Everyone on the boat got to participate as much or as little as they wished, and as sailing adventures go, I would have to say that this one cannot be beaten. We traveled the entire length of the harbor over the course of about 3 hours, and each member of the crew were able to fill us in on points of interest all along the waterfront. This is truly a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience not to be missed when visiting San Diego. I would recommend it to anyone, young or old, as you can participate to any level you wish, from not lifting a finger to "grinding" the main sail all the way up the mast, and driving the boat ! Go !!!
