Even if you have never sailed before, this attraction is an excellent way to see the harbor, so have your camera ready. The crew is engaging and entertaining. This is a great afternoon event!

Whilst not a sailing person, I saw this as a 'must do' activity .... to have an opportunity to sail on an original (albeit 1990's) America's Cup yacht. The small professional crew expected participation of the passenger crew but it was possible to (just) sit...More

An 'epic' sail sailing around Sydney Harbour on this great America's Cup yacht was an experience never to be forgotten. The crew were very experienced and great fun. It really was a sail of a lifetime.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
