Experience the excitement of twilight racing on Sydney Harbour aboard a 58-foot (18-meter) custom-built luxury yacht. You can try your hand at 'pulling ropes,' or just sit back and enjoy the view as the sun sets over Sydney. You'll feel like part of the crew by the end of the race, which takes place twice a week during the summer months.
What You'll Get
Make your way to Rose Bay in the early evening to begin your race on Sydney Harbour. Board the yacht as it's being set up for the race, and receive a pre-race briefing and basic sailing instructions from the crew to prepare for the sail from Ruschutters Bay to Watsons Bay and back.
The regular crew will pull ropes, tacking and gybing Pilgrim around the course. Guests are encouraged to get involved and will be given all the instruction they need for the race.
The crew are there to try and win and also to make sure that everyone on board has a great time - you'll feel part of the crew by the end of the race! A complimentary glass of Tamburlaine Organic Wine or beer is included.
The season runs from early November to early March and gets booked up fast so book in quick if you want to jump on board.
