Hilton Head Island offers the sailing experience of a lifetime aboard the “Stars & Stripes,” the Island’s only authentic 12-meter America’s Cup vessel. This is the original yacht that was skippered by Dennis Connor and won the 1987 Cup for the United States against Australia.
Berthed at the Harbour Town Yacht Basin in The Sea Pines Resort, this yacht cruises across the water under full sail, only using its motor to move in and out of the yacht basin where the cruise embarks. The friendly and experienced crew of three invites all those aboard to get involved, a thrill and a perfect photo-op. The boat is U.S. Coast Guard approved for up to 28 passengers.
“Stars & Strips” offers an array of sailing trips, including a 90-minute afternoon dolphin and nature cruise. The two-hour sunset sail around Hilton Head’s waters is a perfect way to end you day. Beer and wine service is available on all trips. The sailing schedule is seasonal.
You can also purchase official “Stars & Stripes” apparel so you can take away a piece of American sailing history.
