A must for sailing enthusiasts and perfect for anyone looking for a fun and adventurous way to explore Sydney Harbour. On the day of your 2.5 hour America's Cup sailing experience, you’ll be welcomed onboard the yacht in Darling Harbour and a safety briefing will be presented by our professional sailing crew. Before long, the sails are hoisted and it’s time to set sail from underneath the stunning Harbour Bridge and onwards towards Manly, past some of the most famous landmarks in the world! Glide under the Harbour Bridge and past the famous Sydney Opera House and watch the city skyline fade in the distance as we power our way around magnificent Sydney Harbour. « less

I traveled to Sydney on business in August for a week. I went on the Americas Cup sailing experience on my "rest afternoon" having arrived in Sydney at 5am after 24 hours on a plane traveling to Sydney from London. This was a perfect way to blow away the cobwebs from the flight and help me stay awake until later... More

These guys are professional and friendly as they give you hands on guidance in a real yacht race environment ! I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent whilst soaking up the board side view of beautiful Sydney harbors and all iconic monuments. Stretch and wear white sole shoes for the trip to ensure you are prepared to take on the challenge... More

As a seasoned sailor I was looking forward to the experience of sailing this particular type of craft rather than just a day out on the harbour on a yacht. However, the experience was more than I anticipated. The crew were very much the right people for the job-competent, friendly and accommodating, relaxed but watchful. They created the right atmosphere... More

I booked this trip as a gift for a friend who was kind enough to host an American in Australia and I loved it! Not only is it fun and relaxing with a laid-back, humorous, and knowledgeable crew, but you get to be hands-on and get involved! It's also a great way to see all of Sydney--there are so many... More

In Sydney with one free day and this could not have been a better way to spend it. Wednesday is race day (we won) and it was such great fun to see the crew get so competitive. This is serious business to them and winning was icing on the cake. Loved it! Do make sure to wear runners because there's... More

The crew was very friendly. We were only 12 passengers for 4 crew and we all get to stir the America's boat and manoeuvre the sails!!! Plus got a great view of the opera house! Highly recommend it!

Wow, an impressive vessel and crew. Managed to get some perfect sailing weather as well. The experienced crew greeted us at the wharf and welcomed us aboard. Staff were friendly yet ever so mindful that these yachts are serious sailing machines that must be respected. Everyone got a chance (if they wished) to steer the boat and also get plenty... More

A beautiful way to take in Sydney Harbour and learn some local lore. It wasn't the speedy adrenalin rush I'd expected, but we did get up on an angle and get up to 10 knots a couple of times, and even when sailing slowly it's hard not to be perfectly content out there on a quiet sailboat. The staff were... More

Our day of sailing was a grey gloomy day, with off and on rain. My three teens were excited to be sailing in Sydney, so we bundled up as best we could, ready for our adventure. We were all given rain coats, which was very helpful, but we all still got plenty wet. That being said, it was still an... More

The Sailing Sydney American cup racing was a wonderful experience, I would not think twice about doing it again. The crew was friendly as well as knowledgeable, they made you feel very comfortable and truly allowed you to be a part of the whole racing experience.
