Cremorne Point – take the F6 Mosman Bay ferry from Circular Quay to Cremorne Point Wharf

More about the venue

The north easterly thermal breeze can build quickly in December to offer perfect racing conditions, but Sydney is a busy harbour and the sailors will have to deal with choppy conditions from passing ferries.

Whether it is history, nature, sport, culture, art, cuisine or design that interests you, Sydney has something for everyone. The city is defined just as much by miles of ocean coastline and sandy surf beaches as its exquisite harbour. The city is home to the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, two of the most iconic structures on the planet.

Sydney Harbour has become notorious for providing plenty of thrills and spills as the best sailors in the world go head-to-head. For more information on how you can watch the most exciting sailing on earth as part of a corporate hospitality package, click here.
