America's Cup Regatta - Water Based

Using a luxury motor vessel as a water-base with a race commentator, with water taxis to transfer racing teams onto our America’s Cup yachts for short sharp races, rotating through your teams to provide an overall winner based on best time.

Catering can be incorporated for guests to enjoy on-board the motor cat.

We welcome your guests at King Street Wharf, and conduct registration prior to boarding the luxury motor vessel.

We cross hire luxury motor vessels, for example 'Coast', or 'MV Epicure' for use as the waterbase during the event, offering comfortable capacity for the group.

The motor vessel will cruise out of Darling Harbour towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and past the Opera House. The race commentator/M.C. will announce each Sydney icon as we approach and then ask the first 2 teams to marshal at the rear of the vessel.

Your guests are to have been issued with their team allocations prior to arrival.

The sailing program will be conducted under standard marine regulations controlled & supervised by the Explore Sailing Management team.

Catering & beverages can be served on-board the water-base throughout the entire event, at additional cost. Bar facilities can be available throughout the event either on consumption or as an hourly beverage package.
*Please note that as this is a water activity, we strongly recommend limited alcohol consumption during sailing, and any guests deemed by Skippers to be intoxicated will be denied from sailing.

Water taxis will pull up to the rear of the vessel and guests will transfer on each side into the water taxi. The water taxi will then motor over to the waiting racing yacht and crew will assist guests on-board.

Upon boarding the yachts, the skipper will provide sailing instruction and then run through a warm up races so that guests will know what to expect and have the opportunity to ask questions.

We once again stress that guests do not require previous sailing experience.

Depending on conditions of the day, a sailing course will be decided to show the best of what Sydney Harbour has to offer your guests. We may travel past Rose Bay, up and around Shark Island, past Bradley's Head, across to Watsons Bay and then back up to Fort Denison.

Whilst each race is taking place, the race commentator on-board the water-base will keep those guests not sailing in tune with what is happening on the water.
