Item Description

Stars & Stripes-Your party of (2) will enjoy a hands-on 150-minute (2+ hours) experience on Dennis Conner's famous America's Cup yacht "Stars & Stripes". Each of up to (20) total participants will get to play a role as crew while you race this 80-foot yacht around the sheltered waters of San Diego Bay. This is not a guided sight-seeing tour but an interactive sailing thrill. On busy days you'll get to race against another America's Cup yacht giving you the 'ultimate' sailing experience. A sail on "Stars & Stripes" is itself a once-in-a-lifetime treat. Although subject to availability, reservations will make every effort to schedule you for a date when both yachts will race. Must be at least three years of age. Valid one year from date of purchase on mutually-agreed upon dates and times.

Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa & Marina (San Diego)-Enjoy a four-night stay at this 4-star property, the only high-rise on Mission Bay. Consequently, its guest rooms enjoy the best views around, unparalleled sweeps of the bay and ocean. The big pool is shaped like the state of California, set in a spacious, sunny deck next to a free-form whirlpool large enough for 16 guests at a time. (The pool area closes at 10 pm, discouraging those late-night hot-tub parties.) A half-dozen or so traditional palm-topped palapas give the pool area a convincing tropical look. The 24-hour marina-view fitness center is well-equipped for all but the most fervent gym rat. This property is superior to anything the hotels in Mission Valley have to offer. Valid one year from date of purchase, subject to availability.
