Come and live out your America’s Cup dream with a ride on the world’s first foiling charter catamaran. Experience the rush that Team New Zealand felt sailing one of their development boats in the lead up to the San Francisco America’s Cup.

Background info
The boat, Excess, is an SL33 high-performance racing yacht. This boat was critical for Team New Zealand in the testing and design which lead to the big 72-foot America's Cup foiling cats in San Francisco. Now, you get have the chance to experience what it’s like to get a cat like this up on its foils. This trip offers a fast-paced exhilarating sailing ride. You'll get to experience foil assisted upwind hull flying and bearing away for some downwind short foiling runs. No sailing experience is required to come on this trip; however, all guests must have a reasonable level of fitness and be agile and nimble enough to get up and move around the boat quickly.
