America's Cup Chrono Challenge Sydney

A chrono challenge is ideal to keep your group on one yacht, engage everyone in the competition and work to win!

Explore Sailing Sydney Harbour on a real America’s Cup yacht

Your group is split into teams onboard and 2-3 races are conducted, rotating teams racing with those not racing, but watching and heckling. The best time across the series of races is crowned the winner. One yacht only - great for the team and a cheaper option to the Match Race Challenge.

General Format

We welcome your guests at King Street Wharf, and conduct registration at the wharf. Your guests are to have been issued with their team allocation prior to arrival.

Upon boarding the yachts, the skipper will provide sailing instruction and provide a practice sail so that guests will know what to expect and have the opportunity to ask questions. We once again stress that guests do not require previous sailing experience.

Depending on conditions of the day, a racing course will be decided to show the best of what Sydney Harbour has to offer your guests.

We may travel under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, past the Sydney Opera House, past Rose Bay and Double Bay, up and around Shark Island, past Bradley's Head, all weather and time permitting.

The sailing program will be conducted under standard marine regulations controlled & supervised by the Explore Sailing Management team.

Catering & beverages can be served on-board, in between races, at additional cost.
*Please note that as this is a water activity, we strongly recommend limited alcohol consumption during sailing, and any guests deemed by Skippers to be intoxicated will be denied from sailing.

Each team will race whilst others onboard watch on, and then the next team will race, then the next. Guests will grind, navigate and a skipper will be chosen from each team to steer at the helm etc.

Racing onboard multi-million dollar America's Cup Class yachts is the Formula One on water! The America's Cup is all about superior design technology, crew perfection and a winning strategy which is what you will need to take the title of race winners.

The winning team will be the one with the best time across the chosen course! We will provide you with the winning details for you to utilise at your own leisure - you may like to include a presentation at an evening function?

At the end, we assist you back to your designated wharf area with smiles and a new experience to talk about forever.
