ACsailingSF

ACsailingSF The America's Cup Sailing Experience on San Francisco Bay. Experience 2.5 hours of speed and adrenaline on San Francisco Bay aboard USA 76. ACsailingSF was launched in 2011 by Brad and Karen Webb to provide guests with the ultimate sailing experience.

Consistent winds, mild year-round temperatures, and spectacular scenery make San Francisco Bay one of the most iconic places in the world to sail. Many of the world’s greatest sailors and several America’s Cup Teams have been launched from these waters. San Francisco’s entry for the 31st America’s Cup in 2003 was the yacht patriotically named USA 76 with Brad Webb sailing in the bowman position. A

This week passed without much fanfare at ACsailingSF, but last Sunday marked the 10th anniversary of our first USA 76 charter. Two guests joined us on the morning of June 6, 2011, for a wet, chilly ride around the Bay, loved every minute, and thousands have followed since. For a decade we have shared our passion for sailing and the mystique of the America's Cup, while striving to create an experience like no other. Our amazing Captain Jon Buser was in charge of that first trip, and ten years on has undoubtedly sailed more miles on an America's Cup yacht than anyone in history. While USA 76 is the elegant centerpiece of our business, Jon and our crew are the foundation. Our guests write positive reviews about their engagement with our people more than any other aspect of their trip. We are eternally grateful for the effort and professionalism of all our crew, past and present, every time 76 leaves the dock. Thank you.
- Brad & Karen Webb

IL Moro ITA 16 got hauled out at Driscoll Boat Works. She got new bottom paint ☺️...Thank you Driscoll (driscollinc.com)! That torpedo shaped bulb weighs about 37,000 lbs. The rest of the boat (including mast, sails) weighs about 9,000 lbs ! San Diego and San Francisco are the only 2 places in the US that you can sail on an IACC boat like this!

ACsailingSF wrote to say: "We're Open for Sailing! "That's right, we're excited to offer our one-of-a-kind, America's Cup Sailing Experience all summer long. San Francisco's incredible sailing arena is open, and the summer breeze is on! "Join us as we sail in an outdoor, naturally ventilated area - the San Francisco Bay! There's nothing like the wind in our hair and the sun on our face to remind us of the health benefits of the great outdoors. We will be sailing at half capacity, and smaller group sizes mean more helm time for you!" It's not as easy to go sailing as in 'the old days' but it's just as fun, refreshing and rewarding.
Happy 10th anniversary of winning the 33rd America's Cup! And Happy Valentine's Day to you all as well.
Do you sail year round? Wondering whether you're just booked up, or if you're taking a break, is the source of my bad luck in not finding availability this month.
Sail with ACsailingSF and you'll get unforgettable views of San Francisco's iconic landmarks and the Bay.
Are you sailing in June 2020? Was looking to see the online schedule and it's showing no availability.
Is the boat leaning or is the photo crooked? On ACsailingSF, you can feel the thrill of sailing on a former racing yacht! As part of the crew onboard the USA 76, you will help sail across the Bay with perfect views of iconic San Francisco Landmarks.
Become part of the crew with ACsailingSF as you help with the ‘hoist’ and take your turn as a ‘grinder’. It is an adrenaline-filled ride with magnificent views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Sausalito and San Francisco. ACsailingSF has what you need if you’re craving speed!
