The world’s fastest sail racing boats will kick off SailGP Season 2 on Sydney Harbour, 28 and 29 February 2020, and a handful of luxury yachts have the chance to book front row positions and enjoy VIP access to SailGP hospitality experiences.

For the second year running Ocean Media, including Ocean and Sails magazines and websites, has been appointed the Official Adrenaline Yachts programme partner for Sydney SailGP in 2020. A limited number of yachts will be able to get close to the on-water action through the purchase of the Adrenaline Flag, available exclusively through Ocean Media.

The Adrenaline Yachts flag allows vessels special positioning on the racecourse for both race days, plus the official practice day. Onshore, Adrenaline Yachts members will enjoy exclusive access to Australia SailGP Team experiences, VIP SailGP hospitality and other VIP benefits.

“It’s a brilliant couple of days on the water, entertaining friends or clients on the Harbour, watching the fastest and most competitive sailing there is,” said Ocean Media Director, Hillary Buckman.

“Feedback from those yacht owners who shared the Adrenaline Yachts experience in Season 1 was unanimously positive. They likened it to the thrill of F1, with the most picturesque scenery and unparalleled atmosphere for socialising.

“Ocean Media is proud to partner with Sydney SailGP for the Adrenaline Yachts programme and we look forward to welcoming yacht owners and chartering skippers keen to soak up the excitement of the opening event of SailGP Season 2.”

SailGP Season 1 was an outstanding success, attracting 133,000 spectators in its inaugural year in all five of the Iconic venues : Sydney, San Francisco, New York, Cowes and Marseille.

In 2020, Australia’s Tom Slingsby, will be keen to get his championship title defence off to a strong start in front of a home crowd. Slingsby is the first sailor ever to break 50 knots (100 kph) during racing in Season 1, and in SailGP Season 2, will be even more determined to beat his own record.

Sydney Harbour provides a natural amphitheatre to showcase the high-tech foiling F50 catamarans and world-class athletes, and the breathtaking backdrop of cityscape and natural wonder will impress visitors who flock here from around the region and from all over the world.

SailGP is a spectacular not to be missed and Adrenaline Yachts is the ultimate way for luxury boat owners to witness the action.
