There is almost nothing as exciting as being at the helm of an America's Cup yacht steering it upwind or trimming the spinnaker on a close reach. Imagine yourself in a match racing start, or making a close quarters mark rounding as you battle the opposing crew. If you would like the ultimate experience in sailing and team building, Freedom US-30 is for you. This boat is ONLY available for half-day races.
Freedom US-30 was built in 1979 by Olin Stephens & Bill Langan of Sparkman & Stephens in New York City. Freedom was skippered by the renowned Dennis Conner and was victorious in her battle against the challenger Australia in the 1980 America's Cup in Newport, RI.
Usually this boat operates around Greenwich, CT.
New York City looks great from the ground, but that view from the water is something else! Jump aboard a Sailo boat rental from the Big Apple and experience the thrill of the sea - and snap plenty of incredible pictures. Sailing in NYC is a must on your summer bucket list, whether you are visiting or a New Yorker.
It might not be the first thing you think of when finding things to do in New York City, but renting a boat for a full day or just a few hours is a truly memorable experience.
