    City-dwellers and sea-folk alike will enjoy time on the 84-foot racing yacht, sailing the bay and taking in the amazing views of San Francisco.

    Awesome experience .. crew were exceptional !
    It was amazing. Cruised around the bay, gliding through the water. Crew was great, so friendly and helpful. Captain John was great. Loved the whole experience.
    Our sailing adventure exceeded all expectations. We sailed towards the bay bridge to an area of little wind, hoisted the sails and flew under the Golden Gate bridge and back. The crew was professional, instructive and great story tellers. I would book the Americas Cup sailing adventure again. Epic time.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hey Michele, Sounds like a wonderful day on the water! I'm sure the stories were great. Hopefully, you were able to get some nice photos of the sights as well.  Thanks for your review. Let me know when you're ready for another epic adventure. Best, ​Brooke
    This was a fun and thrilling ride through the Bay with great views of San Francisco! We got to help with the sails and steer the boat which was a lot harder then we anticipated! Overall was well worth it and really fun experience.
    It was great, and my guest had a wonderful time!
    Everything was great with booking this sailing trip. It was more than we had hoped for. The crew was super friendly and helpful. This sailing trip was more than expected. Well done everyone involved.
    A fabulous trip on USA 76 in San Francisco. The booking process for me based in the UK was simple and the response to my questions were quick. A great birthday present for my husband, thank you to all involved. Clio Whinray
