Stars & Stripes
Stars & Stripes USA-11 is an International America’s Cup Class (IACC) racing yacht used by Team Dennis Conner in an effort to defend the prestigious America’s Cup trophy held by San Diego Yacht Club. With her 1992 state-of-the-art carbon hull and spars, Stars & Stripes is lighter, larger, and faster than previous generations of America’s Cup boats. Join us for three hours of interactive and exciting FUN sailing San Diego Bay!
IL Moro di Venezia ITA-16 is an Italian America’s Cup veteran also from the 1992 event in San Diego. IL Moro is available for racing events versus Stars & Strpes and is well matched as they were built under the same IACC rules. As a foreign built vessel IL Moro is limited to a maximum of 12 guests, however she can be used for more adventurous activities such as flying the spinnaker. ITA-16 also placed fourth in the IACC World Championship in 1994.
