The world's most exciting race on-water - SailGP -returns to Sydney for a record fifth time over the weekend of 24 and 25 February 2024.

The stunning Sydney Harbour will host the exhilarating eighth event of the thirteen-stop global championship, which visits iconic cities around the world including San Francisco, New York, Auckland, and Los Angeles.

Spectators will not only witness heart-stopping racing as 10 nations go head-to-head, but enjoy premium hospitality with one of the world's most beautiful backdrops. There is something for everyone with a variety of ticketing options giving fans access to a range of on-water and on-land fan experiences.

SailGP fan experiences include:

  • Genesis Island, offering a front row position in the middle of the race course
  • Official spectator boats to get you into the heart of the racing action on the water
  • Bring Your Own Boat (BYOB) program to watch the high-speed action on the water from your own boat
  • Team Base Tours offering behind the scenes access to the SailGP technical areas and teams as they prepare for battle
  • The SailGP Village at Barangaroo, providing a perfect venue to soak up the atmosphere and take part in exciting programming for fans
Last season, thousands of fans immersed themselves in the heart-pounding excitement on Sydney Harbour to watch the technologically-advanced 50-foot hydrofoiling catamarans fly over the water at breathtaking speeds of up to 100km/h.

Following the Aussies three-peat victory in SailGP Season 3, even more spectators from across Australia and internationally are anticipated to support Tom Slingsby's green and gold team as they compete against nine rival nations to maintain their position at the top of the Season 4 leaderboard.

Australia driver and CEO, Tom Slingsby said: "There's no better feeling than a home event, and the spectators in Sydney always turn up in their thousands to show their support which is a fantastic experience. We'd love to see Aussies continue to rally behind us at this iconic event as we defend our title in front of a home crowd. It's a really exciting time for sport in Sydney and we can't wait to race in our home waters again!"
