Calling all boating buddies, tinny hooners, fishing fans, weekend sailors and water racing pros – the most exhilarating sailing event in the world is coming back to Sydney Harbour. But fair warning, it's a bit of an upgrade from what you might be used to. We're not talking about high-grade yachts or roaring speedboats. We're talking about lightning-fast F50 catamarans and the KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix Sydney.

The global touring series takes national teams of elite sailors from around the world and pits them against each other in boats capable of moving up to 100km per hour. The third season has seen action in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, North and Arabian seas throughout 2022. Now, in 2023, they're competing in four remaining events across the Pacific.

The third weekend of February will welcome the event to Sydney Harbour for the fourth time in the championship's history and there are loads of ways to stay close to the action, both on and off the water. Get front-row seats on Genesis Island, watch from up close on an Official Spectator Boat, explore the SailGP Village in Barangaroo and peek behind the scenes in Team Base Tours.

The KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix Sydney runs from Saturday, February 18, to Sunday, February 19. For more information and to grab tickets, visit the website.
