What You Can Expect

America's Cup Sailing on Sydney Harbour

America's Cup Sailing on Sydney Harbour

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.

If you’d like to experience a yacht race firsthand, upgrade to the 3-hour sail on Wednesdays when your boat competes in Sydney Harbour against other topnotch yachts.

Probably not for everybody, but for those of us who sail, this is a thrill like no other... a chance to be up close and personal with this very high performance boat and to get just a little feel of what racing it must be like.

Really good trip. The crew were rally friendly and everyone was able to get involved. Shame about the lack of wind which forced a retirement.

Fantastic experience- the crew was very friendly and knowledgable both about sailing and about the general harbor and Sydney. Was a memorable experience and a highlight of my trip. We were actively involved in helping to sail the ship, but had sufficient time to sit and enjoy the viewing. Very fun, very informative, and highly recommended- well worth it.

This was a great experience with a very professional but fun crew. The views are spectacular and you get to participate in the sailing experience, cranking up the sails and even driving the boat! This is certainly a pulse-racing experience, though never once did we feel unsafe. All in all, a great time and we would definitely recommend it...and do it again!

This was the highlight of our sydney adventures. Even better then expected. The rain didn't seem to bother us at all except glad we brought a change of shoes and clothes. Crew was amazing, and gave us an adventure of a lifetime. They were all so experienced and lovely to chat with. We were safe and the boat was incredible. Thanks for an awesome experience and we've told all our family here that this is a MUST TO DO!

A great trip, we had many great views of the harbor and were able to get several great pictures. BE aware that you backpack is kept below as lot of movement is needed on the boat. However, the staff are willing to it out if you need something.
