Highlights


  • Sail in a real yacht race on Sydney Harbour against up to 100 other yachts
  • "Pull ropes" with the crew or relax and watch it all happen around you!
  • Enjoy a beer or a wine as the sun goes down after the race (included)


Description


Come twilight racing with Pilgrim Sailing on Sydney Harbour!

During the summer months, Pilgrim races twice a week in the twilight yacht races on Wednesdays and Fridays around Sydney Harbour where up to 100 other boats can be competing!

The races are a great way to enjoy Sydney Harbour in a very different way and a fantastic introduction to sailing.

You can join the crew on the beautiful 58-foot yacht.  Either sit back and enjoy the stunning harbour at sunset or help sail the boat. Basic sailing instruction is provided (no sailing experience is necessary).  

The regular Pilgrim crew will pull ropes, tacking and gybing Pilgrim around the course. Guests are encouraged to get involved and will be given all the instruction they need for the race.

The crew are there to try and win and also to make sure that everyone on board has a great time - you'll feel part of the crew by the end of the race!  

After the race or on the downwind leg, you'll enjoy a beer or wine (included) as the sun goes down.

Note: If you're looking for a very relaxing sail, this is not guaranteed on the Twilight Racing (especially on a windy day). Maybe our #Sip&Sail Twilight Cruise is more suited to you?

The Twilight Racing season runs from early November to early March and fills up fast so book in quick if you want to jump on board.

Sydney Harbour Racing (for Groups)

Sydney Harbour Racing (for Groups)

Race against the local "yachties" in a REAL yacht race on Sydney Harbour. Available Tuesday nights and Wednesday afternoons for up to 12 guests and includes drinks and nibbles. (Private Charter)

Jump on board with your team or a group of friends and race in a REAL yacht race on Sydney Harbour!


HIGHLIGHTS & INCLUSIONS


  • Sail in a real yacht race on Sydney Harbour either on a Tuesday evening (4.30 pm to 7.30pm) or Wednesday afternoon (1pm to 4pm)
  • A great way to enjoy Sydney Harbour in a different way!
  • Basic sailing instruction before (and during) the race
  • Recommended for groups of up to 12 pax (a second boat can be arranged on request)
  • Price includes Tamburlaine Organic Wines, beer, soft drinks and your choice of antipasto platter, sandwich platter or selection of pies, quiches and sausage rolls

You and up to eleven of your colleagues or friends will be the crew for the race assisted by a skipper and one other crew. 


The skipper is a Royal Yachting Association Sailing Instructor and will give a safety briefing and basic sailing lesson shortly after boarding.  During this time the team will learn some basic sailing theory.

Once the basics have been covered we'll allocate sailing positions to everyone in the group.  There are a variety of different positions available ranging from the more physical to the less physical and we will ensure everyone is suited to the requirements of the role.  

Note: no previous sailing experience is required, the crew on board will be there to give step by step instructions on each manoeuvre.

Once positions are allocated there'll be a short practical session to get everyone familiar with the requirements of their role before the race start.

Once the gun goes and the race has started, you'll be pulling ropes and getting the boat moving as fast as possible in the attempt to win the race.  There can be up to 20 other yachts racing against us so it gets pretty exciting at times!  The course length and duration will all depend on the wind conditions on the day and will cover a large part of the harbour from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the heads.

After the race, you'll have the opportunity to relax on board for a beer or a glass of wine and enjoy the views of Sydney Harbour.
