Maximum Participants

This experience is to be enjoyed by the passengers only.
Weather Dependent
The ship sails in most weather conditions. A trip is only canceled in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions. Cancellations are made on the day of the sail, by the Captain, and may be determined up to 1 hour prior to sail time. Always contact the experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions on the day of your experience. In the event of a cancelled sail, passengers will reschedule directly with the experience provider.
What To Wear
Dress is typically casual. The temperature can be cooler out on the water, so dress accordingly. We ask that passengers wear closed-toed shoes such as sneakers or deck shoes. Please, no sandals or high-heels as there is a lot of movement on the yacht.
Will I get seasick?
Most passengers do not experience seasickness. The USA 76 is a stable yacht, designed for cutting through waves rather than riding up and over them.
Is there a restroom on board?
There is not a restroom on board. Restroom facilities are available at the pier prior to the sail.
What if there is no wind?
In the unlikely event of no wind in the San Francisco Bay, you will reschedule directly with your Captain.
Will I get wet?
This is a hands-on sailing experience, and there is a possibility of getting splashed. Appropriate gear is provided to keep you dry.
Can I bring food and drinks on board?
Captain and crew will provide water and light snacks on board. The USA 76 is a racing yacht, and the experience is an active, hands-on sail. It is recommended to not bring food on board.
