2009 Sydney Harbour Sailing Spectacular

Experience the thrill and excitement of sailing when our city’s famous and most glamorous yachts converge on Sydney Harbour for the largest regatta since the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

The harbour will transform into a tapestry of colour, when over 250 boats and some 3000 highly competitive sailors come head to head to win this highly prestigious event. Offering the richest prize in yachting, the overall winner will be awarded a brand new Audi luxury vehicle.
To win the keys to this stunning prize, winning crews must show their skill on the asphalt at the “Audi Final Challenge”.

The event launches with a glamorous cocktail party on the shores of Middle Harbour Yacht Club,
on Tuesday 5 March 2009.
Come Regatta weekend, rub shoulders shore-side with the champions of sail as they enjoy breakfast on the marina deck or take part in the hive of activities including alfresco dining, remote control model yachts (great entertainment for land lovers), fashion parades, live music, beach parties, fireworks and more.
The event culminates with the Official Prize Presentation on Monday 9 March 2009.
