Extreme Sailing Series Spectator Boat

Join us aboard Bella Luna, a 50′ modern classic motor yacht for the best views of San Diego’s Extreme Sailing Series. Bella Luna is a US Coast Guard inspected and certified charter yacht, and is proud to partner with the Extreme Sailing Series to be your spectator boat!  Bella Luna is owned and operated by Captain John Valente.


Since its inception, the Extreme Sailing Series™ has attracted some of the world’s best sailors from a range of disciplines, including the Olympics, America’s Cup and round the world ocean racing. In 2016, the Extreme Sailing Series™ celebrated its tenth season with the introduction of a fleet of foiling GC32 catamarans, with the teams ‘flying’ in front of thousands of spectators in premier destinations around the world. The super-light GC32 foiling catamarans can reach speeds of almost 40 knots (46mph), and like the bigger yachts used in the America’s Cup, appear to fly over the water as they lift off the surface and accelerate.

Bella Luna is docked at the Sheraton Hotel & Marina on Harbor Island right behind the Extreme Sailing Series course.  We’ll depart the dock a half hour before the start gun and have the best views of all the sailing action.  We provide two very large Coleman coolers stocked with soft drinks and water.  Bella Luna does not serve alcohol at family friendly events.  But you are welcome to bring any food and beverages you wish to enjoy.  Please limit your cooler size to no larger than the average carry on picnic tote bag.

Bella Luna will be cruising the bay for each of the four days of GC32 main event racing from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.  Bella Luna will depart the dock at the Sheraton Hotel & Marina promptly each day at 1:30pm.  There will be no refunds to those who “miss the boat”.  Please choose the date you would like to attend and purchase as many tickets as you want in your party. Print and retain your receipt as your boarding pass.

Call Captain John if you would like to reserve Bella Luna exclusively for a private party, either for the Extreme Sailing Series or any other time or event of your choosing.  (619) 928-2441
