What's Included?

  • Safety brief and warm up and participation in the offical fleet race
  • Wet weather gear if required

Step aboard our Americas Cup yacht to compete in the Sydney Harbour Fleet race against 40 to 60 other yachts. During summer, the Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club hosts this race, and during winter, The Royal Australian Navy Sailing Association. Enjoy the hype of the starting line, the strategy during racing and the elation as you go over that finish line, maybe head to head with another competing yacht!

Get hands on or sit back and take in all the action! No experience necessary.

Racing aboard multi-million dollar America's Cup Class yachts is the Formula One on water! The America's Cup is all about superior design technology, crew perfection and a winning strategy. The crew members aboard will keep you informed of other yachts and strategic moves in the race and endeavour to win their division each week.
