Set Sail to Nantucket

The Opera House Cup is named after the Opera House Restaurant in Nantucket. The establishment was a favorite gathering place for the sailing community, and as a way to honor it (and it’s owner Gwen Gaillard), they proposed a sailing race for wooden boats. The rest is history. This event attracts some of the finest vessels and skilled mariners to be found anywhere, including former America’s Cup:

  • Weatherly
  • Columbia
  • Intrepid

There are 10 primary awards up for grabs at the Opera House Cup, including the Cruising Division, Day Racing Division, Panerai Best Performance, First to Finish, Vintage Grand Classic, Vintage Corinthian Yacht, Vintage Day Racer, Grand Prix Yacht, 12-meter Class and Alerion Class.

And when the racing is over, crews and spectators celebrate at the OHC Awards Party, which is regarded as the marquee social event of the season on Nantucket. This event draws 500 attendees and features great food and drinks, a slideshow and awards presentation and live music.

An Event Steeped in History

We frequently get requests for charter flights to Nantucket during the summer months, but there’s one particular event on the social calendar that garners extra attention: the Opera House Cup Regatta. Held on the third Sunday of every August, this prestigious event has been a favorite of the yachting community for more than 50 years. Hosted by Nantucket Community Sailing, the 52nd Opera House Cup gets underway on August 18, 2024. It holds the distinction as being the first all-wooden, single-hulled classic boat regatta on the East Coast.

In addition to being the finale of Nantucket Race Week (the two-day Nantucket Regatta is held on Friday and Saturday), the Opera House Cup is part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. It is the largest international circuit of regattas reserved for classic yachts. Panerai regattas are held internationally in the countries of France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. There are also a handful of regattas on the east coast, including:

  • Marblehead Corinthian Classic, Marblehead, Massachusetts
  • Bristol Herreshoff Classic, Bristol, Rhode Island
  • Newport Classic, Rhode Island

Stratos made this trip extra special with a gift of cupcakes upon departure for my wife's birthday. Great crews and aircraft and even when flying during some of the busiest times of the year everything was super easy and stress free! Thank you Mark & Sarah for always covering every detail and especially our last minute changes. You guys make every trip fun and special.

Recently booked a jet for 11 people from my organization to continue operations during hurricane Irma. As business owners know, operations do not cease during a disaster and customers must continue to be served. Stratos Jet Charters booked the aircraft we needed within an hour of reaching out. Our team was able to continue business operations in NYC seamlessly. Much appreciation to Joel and his team for fast action!

5 1 5 12/17/2016

Our VP's had a wonderful trip and great experience. Your staff is professional, welcoming, easy to work with and I look forward to working with them again. Thank you!

5 1 5 01/01/2018

I thought Stratos was professional and easy to work with. We didn't have any problems or communication issues whatsoever. It's really nice when we don't have to deal with 10 different people to coordinate a trip.

5 1 5 10/05/2017

Our company jet had a mechanical problem and we had a very important meeting that our passsengers had to make. Joel was able to locate and reposition an airplane for us in a matter of two hours. Our passengers were able to make their meeting and were very pleased with the aircraft/crew that was selected. Good work.

5 1 5 07/15/2018

Always a pleasure to do business with Stratos Jets. Smooth process from booking to completion. A great organization.

Everything from booking to flying to ground transport was taken care of. Stratos made our golf trip amazing!

5 1 5 01/04/2020

As a charter operator, it is hard at times to work with Broker companies to get all of the information we need quick and efficiently back and forth to each other. We had no issues at all in this case when working with Stratos Jets. The team got everything we needed to us in a timely manner and we were able to make the transaction very smooth. I hope your clients enjoyed their flight! Our pilots said they seemed pleased upon arrival. Looking forward to working with you all again!

Randy Schuette answered all of my questions and kept me up to date even with the early arrival of my flight which kept my trip on time.  The flight was smooth with a great landing by pilot Mariah Fever!

Thank you,

Karen W.

5 1 5 04/03/2018

Stratos was so easy to work with. Kerri was so understanding of a couple itinerary changes we had to make to ensure a safe, smooth flight. As our charter ops director, I sincerely appreciate when our customers realize that our decisions are in their best interest. Though not always ideal, we always provide our best option given uncontrollable variables such as weather, winds, etc. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job. Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated in return!

5 1 5 07/19/2021

From start to finish everything was perfect. Steve Stogner was awesome, professional, efficient, great follow up . Our pax’s said “ absolutely loved the experience, great pilots, beautiful aircraft “

5 1 5 08/28/2019

Team was very efficient and communicated in a timely, professional manner. Made it a breeze to work with! Thanks!

5 1 5 11/01/2023

Probably to save on hotels for crew (Wisconsin would be cheaper than Toronto). Weather did not cooperate so cost us half an hour. Not the end of the world, but still an annoyance that could have been avoided.

5 1 5 11/01/2021

Anthony worked hard on our request and came up with a perfect solution. The plane was the right size to hold all our luggage, and the flight on-time, comfortable, and in all respects outstanding. Highly recommended.

5 1 5 11/23/2020

The entire Stratos Jets support team is always a pleasure to work with. As an operator, we appreciate the exceptional communicativeness of the SJ team; Kyle Jones was excellent as our SJ contact for this trip. Payment for the trip is always prompt. Any and all information we need is provided and day-of support is phenomenal. We are looking forward to working with you again soon! -Flying Zebra Team

5 1 5 10/31/2022

Everything was great with the trip; it was a bit rushed on my part and Danny was a rockstar! He gave me many options and honest and frank feedback and advice. He made me feel like I was the only client he had and was incredibly responsive to all my questions and concerns. Stress-free and relaxing is the best way to summarize my experience. I will always use Stratos and Danny!! thank you to all the team as well!

5 1 5 05/23/2021

10 out of 10 every time!

5 1 5 05/14/2021

Everything went very smoothly and we were pleased with everything on the trip.

5 1 5 01/01/2018

Once again, Stratos Jets provided perfect travel service with competitive prices! We needed to move a family member with memory loss and agitation from Boston to Houston on very short notice. Joel set everything up within 24 hours- a beautiful private jet, cars and drivers at both ends of the trip, a security detail plus catering. I am completely impressed with this company and will use them whenever I need private jet service. Thank you, Joel!

5 1 5 03/21/2023

Glenn, who assisted every step of the way was professional and kind as he answered the many questions I had as this was our first experience traveling in this way. The communication was clear and any expectations we had were exceeded. The pilot was very personable and made the experience enjoyable from the time we arrived at the FBO until we landed. Thank you.

5 1 5 04/02/2018

Competitive pricing and unbelievable customer service, from inquiry to post flight. They make it happen and make it easy. I will not competitive shop again because I have found the best price and service with Stratos.

5 1 5 01/08/2018

Always great working with you guys!

5 1 5 09/17/2021

The flight was fabulous, fun, and delicious. The crew was fantastic--professional and courteous. The flight attendant was spectacular--warm, wonderful and extremely attentive. The agent's support was once again terrific, thoughtful and professional. We will highly recommend these services to others.

Eric Bold and Stratos Jets came to the rescue this week whilst I was trying to evacuate friends and families from Puerto Rico during the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.  Eric was beyond helpful and always courteous.  He was quick to find an aircraft within my budget and stayed in contact with me at every point during our transaction to update me on all matters concerning our trip.  I would highly recommend Stratos Jets to anyone and I look forward to working with them on our next trip.
Thanks again for everything!

5 1 5 03/23/2022

Start to finish the team was very professional.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

The lounge in Ft Lauderdale was very professional, comfortable, and accommodating. Pilot was a real gem who charmed my first time flyer guests who started out nervous but hugged him on the way out! Would not hesitate to recommend for charter needs.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Perfect experience!!!!! The flight was on time, the pilots were great, and Booking with Kyle was easy and exceptional! Stratos is the very BEST option for flying private.

5 1 5 10/09/2020

All aspects pf the trip were easy and very worthwhile!!

5 1 5 03/04/2016

We were thoroughly impressed with all aspects of these operations. If at all possible, a method to protect the identity of passengers might be developed (whereby TSA rules are still met). If such a method already exists, my clients would appreciate knowing the details.

5 1 5 12/31/2010

Great trip!  Keep us informed of empty legs to Aspen

5 1 5 05/22/2021

Zach Rankin is the best jet broker I have ever met! Total first class experience. Super responsive & passionate & customer service oriented. I’m in real estate hospitality....hotels & apartments etc. So I understand how hard it is to execute flawless high-end customer service like Zach.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

Great service!  Anne and I will contact you, probably in mid-January about our next trip to Florida. Thanks and have a good evening.

5 1 5 08/14/2017

As always, the folks at Stratos Jet Charters did an outstanding job responding to a short-notice requirement for supplemental lift for our flight department. Their staff is always focused on the customer needs and preferences. Through their proven performance, they have become my "go-to" solution when the need arises.

5 1 5 07/09/2018

Very Professional! Top notch aircraft and crew. Will certainly be using Stratos in the future!!

5 1 5 06/08/2021

Zach was pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and a delight to deal with. I have usually used another broker but Zach won the charter for your company Joel. Well done.

  • How do I choose the right aircraft for my mission?

    dropdown dropdown

    As charter brokers, we do more than simply book your charter flight. At Stratos Jets, our air charter associates are highly trained personnel capable of matching our clients with the appropriate aircraft for their travel needs. Once we determine how many passengers you’re travelling with and how far you’re flying, we can determine which category of aircraft you require. There are many options available. The most common aircrafts hired for private charters include:

    • Cessna’s Citation X
    • Gulfstream’s G650
    • Bombardier’s Global line

    After that, we can help you narrow down the selection of recommended aircraft based on budget, desired cabin amenities, airport requirements, luggage capacity, as well as aircraft age and performance capabilities.

    Staying Safe in the Skies

    At Stratos Jets, air charter safety is our number one concern. One of our key policies is to increase consumer education. This ensures our clients are able to make informed decisions. We also work with our aircraft providers to ensure their safety training programs meet and even exceed our air charter safety requirements. To make this happen, Stratos Jets is an ARGUS Certified Broker. This means that our brokerage firm is:

    • Committed to the best industry practices
    • Adhering to all applicable safety regulations
    • Maintaining the appropriate insurance coverage required
  • Are there additional costs per private jet rental passenger?

    dropdown dropdown

    There are no additional costs per passenger. At Stratos Jet Charters, we base our private jet rental prices per hour, not per guest.

    The Stratos Pricing Estimator

    If you would like to estimate the cost of a private jet charter, use our Stratos pricing estimator page. It lists the most common estimates based on destination and aircraft type. And you can always enter customized data to get an estimate for a specific destination.

    Additional Concierge Charges

    We do charge for some of our additional concierge services, such as in-flight catering and entertainment, hotel bookings and ground transportation. We know our clients’ time is precious, so we offer the value and convenience of “one-stop-shopping” through our Trip Support team. When you book a flight with Stratos Jet Charters, we can take care of all the logistics, including booking hotels, meeting spaces, limousines and tickets to special events. That way you can relax, and enjoy your trip.

    Empty Leg Charters

    Also, since we charge per hour, not per passenger, there are travel bargains to be found with our Empty Leg Flights. Many of our private jet rental flights are one-way, and then we need to move the aircraft to a new destination. To reduce the costs of flying an empty aircraft, we offer discounts to travelers with flexible itineraries. Clever passengers will sometimes split the cost with their fellow travelers, thereby reducing the cost for everyone on the flight.  

  • Can I make last-minute changes to my itinerary?

    dropdown dropdown

    If your plans need to change, we will do everything in our power to accommodate the changes. One of the benefits of hiring Stratos Jet Charters is that we have much more flexibility than commercial airlines and can provide many more air charter services.

    We have two teams that can help you. Here is a brief description of each:

    Charter Sales Agents 

    This is the initial contact team. They evaluate your travel needs to identify the appropriate aircraft type for your travel plan. Pricing is determined by aircraft availability, its position related to the intended departure location and the position of where the aircraft needs to be after performing the customer’s flight.   

    Trip Support Team

    Once the aircraft has been selected, Trip Support works with the customer, the air carrier and all concierge service providers to organize all of the travel details. Trip Support is responsible for coordinating:

    • Departure time
    • Departure and arrival at the Fixed Base departure location
    • Ensuring assigned crew members meet Stratos experience requirements
    • Making sure the insurance is current and everyone is protected
    • Coordinating all concierge services

    In reference to last-minute itinerary changes, any changes would go through the Trip Support Team.

    Our customers often have demanding flight itineraries that can change quickly. They’ve come to appreciate knowing there’s an entire team of people focused on organizing all the details of their trip. Stratos Jet Charters wants to provide our clients with consistently outstanding air charter service and an impeccable safety record.
