Dennis Conner's America's Cup winning Stars & Stripes or one of her contenders, Canada II and True North IV are yours for this once in a lifetime adventure. The expert crew will show you exactly what to do in your role as “crew member”. Then it's off to the racecourse to grind a winch, trim a sail, punch a stopwatch or just relax and enjoy the refreshments. For this unique adventure, a highlight of your holiday, previous sailing experience is not necessary!

After the race enjoy the complimentary victory rum punch party, while you browse through the museum souvenir boutique. Guests will be able to take a leisurely walk back to the cruise ship terminal (5 mins.) or downtown/boardwalk (10 mins.).
