Welcome to the most “unique” and “thrilling” yachting activity on San Francisco Bay

We applaud your interest in San Francisco!  It is a very unique city in every respect.  San Francisco Bay, the mighty Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz are iconic attractions of this vibrant city.  Getting out on the water is a ‘must do’ activity for visitors to San Francisco, and here at ACsailingSF we have 2 very unique yachts for group and individual experiences.

We have the unique distinction of operating:

The “only” America’s Cup yacht in San Francisco
The “most modern” America’s Cup Yacht available anywhere in the world
The “fastest charter sailing yacht in the world

Info that clients wanting TEAM BUILDING or ENTERTAINMENT would need to know:

USA 76


USA 76 was one of the more successful of the “BMW Oracle Racing” America’s Cup yachts over the 10 years leading up to Valencia, 2010.

It is the “most modern” America’s Cup yacht available anywhere in the World for the public to experience.

Private / Corporate trips provide a 2.5 hour hands-on experience of a team-building nature, or for simply exciting leisure activity (Typically 10:30 am to 1:00 pm OR 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm). Summer afternoons offer the opportunity for a late ‘sunset’ trip as well.

The yacht accommodates up to 20 guests (+ 4 of our crew).

We operate from our own dock at the popular PIER 39 tourist facility (easy to find, easy parking, restaurants very close).

Provided: jackets and wet weather gear for warmth and comfort for all 20 guests, water & energy bar snacks.

Many options include a regular hands-on sail experience, a more structured team building event and a professionally facilitated team building experience.

Upgrades include: branding, logo clothing, motivational speaking & history presentations, professional photography and Brad Webb as celebrity guest sailor.

USA 76 provides ticketed individual experiences as well as group activities.


TOMCAT is a ProSail 40 Professional Racing Catamaran that is the fastest, most EXTREME charter boat in the world for the ultimate thrill-seekers.

TOMCAT is named in honor of passed Bay Area America’s Cup sailor Tom Blackaller, who also raced a ProSail 40 catamaran.

Launched in late June 2014, TOMCAT accommodates just 6 adventurous guests (+ 3 crew).

The experience is 2.5 hours with 1.5 hours of extreme sailing (includes a pre-briefing, familiarization, dry suits & safety gear).

Guests should be reasonably ‘agile’ in order to get the most from this experience.
