  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Enjoy a million-dollar experience when you sail a magnificent America’s Cup yacht in the glorious setting of Sydney Harbour.

    This 75-foot grand prix racing machine offers a racing adventure like no other. It provides a large, spectacular, safe and comfortable platform from which you can enjoy the stunning sights of the world’s most spectacular harbour.

    No prior experience is necessary and, whether you are a novice or an experienced sailor, you will have the chance to crew the boat or take the helm. Or else you can just kick back and enjoy the salty breeze and the sensation of being on the type of boat that is normally the domain of a billionaire or a professional yachtsman!

    Itinerary

    For your America’s Cup Sailing Experience in Sydney, you should make your way to Wharf 9, King St Wharf, Darling Harbour. The meeting place is just a boat length from Sydney Aquarium and close to some of Sydney's top restaurants, bars and hotels. Darling Park Monorail Stop is a stroll away from the wharf, and just across the water is the Australian National Maritime Museum.

    You should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to departure for check in.

    You will board a real America's Cup yacht – either Spirit (AUS21) or Kookaburra (AUS40) for the racing experience of a lifetime. The America's Cup is the world's oldest and most prestigious sporting trophy and the ultimate yachting regatta. This tour offers a unique opportunity to sail on one of the marvelous racing machines that participate in this premier event.

    The yacht will head out into stunning Sydney Harbour, giving you splendid views of the main landmarks and city skyline. You can join in and crew the boat or just sit back and relax. The trip takes you under the Harbour Bridge past the Opera House and all the way over to Manly Cove.

    Your thrilling sailing adventure lasts about 2.5 hours. At the end you will be dropped back at the starting point.
