As the eighth stop on the thirteen-event global championship, Sydney will join the ranks of iconic cities such as San Francisco, New York, Auckland, and Los Angeles in hosting this prestigious event. Ten nations will go head-to-head in a battle of skill and strategy, set against one of the world’s most beautiful backdrops.

But the excitement isn’t limited to the water. The event offers a variety of ticketing options, allowing fans to choose from a range of on-water and on-land experiences. Whether you’re a seasoned sailing enthusiast or a newcomer to the sport, there’s something for everyone at SailGP Sydney 2024.

Among the fan experiences on offer are:

Last season, thousands of fans immersed themselves in the heart-pounding excitement on Sydney Harbour, watching the technologically-advanced 50-foot hydrofoiling catamarans fly over the water at breathtaking speeds of up to 100km/h.

This season, following the Aussie team’s 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.

“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,” said Australia driver and CEO, Tom Slingsby. “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!”
