With the Prada Cup racing to take place in a location that is largely out of sight for shore based spectators, there is still the opportunity to get out on the water, and see some of the best sailors in the world racing the fastest yachts on the planet.

Join the team on Cup Cat and see two top teams in action - a double America's Cup champion pitted against the most successful Olympic sailor in history.

The Brits might be in a corner, but Ben Ainslie is a fighter and has come from behind many times before. And Jimmy Spithill needs no introduction.

Win or lose, seeing the spectacular AC75's is an unforgettable sight for sailing and non-sailing fans alike. These boats and crews will take your breath away.

Ever thought you would see a yacht sail at 35kts+ upwind, or at near 50kts downwind, and occasionally leap completely clear of the water?? The racing this weekend may be your last chance as there are heavy bookings for the Cup.

The cost for the day is $340pp incl GST and finger food. There is a cash bar (with eftpos) available on board.

The Cup Cat is a large, spacious catamaran with plenty of room for comfort, so you can relax and enjoy the unique sight of these ultra-fast AC75 foiling monohulls in action.
