Event Description

SailGP is sailing redefined. SailGP is an annual, global sports league featuring bold, cutting-edge technology and awe-inspiring athleticism. The fan-centric, inshore racing takes place in some of the mosticonic harbours around the globe, starting with Sydney on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 February 2019.

Sydney SailGP will showcase the best Sydney Harbour has to offer, with a range of on- and off-water options for spectators to watch rival national teams battle it out in identical supercharged F50 catamarans, engineered for intense racing at electrifying speeds exceeding 50 knots (nearly 100km/h).

Please note: 

Please arrive at 1.20pm on Friday 15 February and 12.50pm on Saturday 16 February to ensure you do not miss your ferry. To provide the best experience possible, our ferry departure times are strictly observed. We cannot wait for late-comers so please ensure you allow extra travel time on your journey to the Man O War Steps to avoid delays.

Due to the RMS enforced exclusion zone, no water Taxis or private vessels will be able to cross through to the official viewing area on Shark Island after 3 pm on Friday 15 February and 2pm on Saturday 16 February. Missing the last ferry may result in you being unable to access the official viewing area on Shark Island. You will not be provided with a refund for missing the scheduled ferry.



Due to the limitations of the wharf on Shark Island, a permanent accessibility option to allow the use of wheelchairs on the island has not yet been identified and put in place. Therefore, we deal with each person on a case by case scenario so that we can work through your needs and requirements and look at whether we can accommodate these to support you in coming along to the event. If you are able to provide us some additional information this will help us determine whether this may be a possibility – please contact us [email protected]
