Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

With Amercia’s Cup sailing so ingrained in our culture we thought this experience was such a great match for Chuffed. The fact you can get hand’s on, feel the power of the yacht when you take the helm, understand how hard the grinding is and feel the pace these boats travel makes this a highly memorable experience. When we tried it, it gave us a huge appreciation for how skilled our world famous sailors are.
