I haven’t sailed in years. This brought back lots of memories. Great crew on the Stars and Stripes. Fun time. Wish it could have been a couple of hours long. Well organized. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Great morning on the water, friendly captain and crew, and you really get to participate as much or as little as you'd like. Did as a shore excursion from a cruise ship and highly recommend it!

This was our families first time on a sail boat. It was fun for everyone from kids to grandparents. Not everyone needed to “work” unless they wanted to. Captain was fun and made it really enjoyable and answered a ton of questions about sailing

We had a fabulous time on the Stars and Stripes sailboat racing against Canada's True North IV. Great crew and Captain. The crew appreciate the help each person can offer, So quiet with no motor. Also had drinks aboard for passengers.
