Come Sail Away0
I have never been sailing before and what better way to go than on one of the fastest boats on the water, the America II. She originally competed in the 1983 America’s Cup in Australia. She didn’t win but she did get into the semi finals with a crew of 11. We boarded the sail boat in Lahaina with a crew of 2 and 6 passengers and went for an amazing wet and wild sail for a few hours.
It was such a relaxing and invigorating feeling just sitting in the sail boat as the wind took hold of the sail. Sometimes holding on with our bare feet for support as one side of the boat was up in the air and the other touching the water. We got covered in the salty sea water and had a fantastic time. Funny side note; the America II was in the movie Wind and painted red for her role.
