Unique Corporate Sailing in San Diego

 
 
It is rare in San Diego for the wind to be so light for sure, but regardless both of our 80 Ft America’s Cup yachts conducted several races last week in conjunction with the Catamaran Aolani acting as ‘mothership’ and transfer vessel. While Aolani filled the need this occasion we usually use the 139 ft yacht ‘America’ for this mothership and transfer role, one of the most unique sailing events in the world. On this occasion the ‘America’ was still in the boat yard for Coast Guard annual inspections. For corporate team building this is as unique as it gets. What a treat for folks that have not sailed before, and even those who are more seasoned at sailing. These big America’s Cup yachts still take your breath away.

This would normally be the case…..the ‘America’ as mother-ship transferring guests to “Stars & Stripes”.
