Whether you’re a landlubber or an experienced sailor, you’ll feel the thrill of sailing aboard a powerful vessel that formerly raced in the America’s Cup. The world of yacht racing is normally the province of billionaires and elite sailors, however this tour gives you the chance to sail a world-class boat on Sydney Harbour.
Have the option to do as much or as little as you like during the sail. You can learn to work the winch, trim the sails and grab the wheel of the state-of-the-art sailboat as the expert crew demonstrates key sailing skills and then lets you try your hand at it.
Your crew shows you landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and districts such as Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, The Rocks and Manly. Hear stories of Australia’s upset win of the America’s Cup in 1983, a victory that broke the United States’ 132-year winning streak, the longest in the history of world sport.
