Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your trip will begin by checking in at Gate B, Pier 39 fifteen minutes prior to departure (Gate B is located behind the Aquarium of the Bay on the east side of Pier 39 close to The Embarcadero). Upon departure we will introduce the crew, have a safety brief, and share some history about the yacht. Then it is time hoist the sails and go yachting!

    Participation is encouraged! With a mast that reaches 11 stories high, everything is big and powerful. You get to fill active crew roles and will have the opportunity to spin the sail trim controls known as “coffee grinders,” take your turn at the helm, or simply sit back and enjoy the ride on this high-performance America’s Cup racing yacht.

    While we are sailing you will enjoy spectacular views of San Francisco and the surrounding communities. We have complimentary water and energy bars available during the sail. There are no restroom facilities aboard this race yacht so we will instruct you where to use the restroom on land before departure. 

    Our crew enjoys sharing their knowledge about the America’s Cup and sailing on San Francisco Bay so bring lots of questions. If you enjoy your experience, gratuities for the crew are greatly appreciated.

    Both your Captain and the yacht are licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard for passenger service. USA 76 is a very stable yacht and sea sickness is never a problem for our guests. USA 76 can accommodate up to 20 guests at a time.

    Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. I wish I had brought warmer clothing, but there were spares on board to borrow. It was delightful getting to help crank up the sail and steer for a bit. I got good answers to all of my questions.

    We went out on a blustery day, with winds in the 15-knots and moderate wave action. Into the wind, we were heeled over around 20 to 30-degrees and making around 25-mph. Everyone that wanted to could take the helm for a generous amount of time. Several of the guest-crew served as
