SailGP Season 2 returns to Sydney February 28 & 29, 2020. National pride will be on the line as world class teams take part in dramatic, adrenaline-filled racing on the iconic Sydney Harbour. SailGP falls on the last weekend of the Australian summer, which is famous for sunny days with high temperatures.
Sydney: Australia's Harbour City
Sydney is the first stop on many Australian itineraries, and for good reason. It's an inviting blend of the exhilarating and easygoing. You can find excitement in the city, but drive just a few kilometres and you'll hit the golden sand of famous beaches like Bondi and Manly. Plus, with endless nature at its doorstep, Sydney is the starting point for day trips serving up fresh air, unique flavours and locals who know a thing or two about living life to the fullest.
How to get there
International flights fly directly into Sydney Airport from many global hubs. From the airport it’s an easy 20-minute taxi or train ride to the city centre.

“Sailing in front of a home crowd was simply amazing, and something that I had never experienced before at this level. There is nothing more special and motivating for an athlete to have the support of the home crowd, and I am extremely excited that we are returning to Sydney. It’s one of my favorite places to sail and to win this year was the perfect start to our season. We’ll be aiming to make it a repeat victory next year.”
