SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – July 10, 2024 – SailGP, the most exciting racing on water, today unveiled a return to Sydney’s iconic harbour for a record sixth event as part of its 2024/2025 Season calendar. 

KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix | Sydney will take place on February 8-9 as the third event of the league’s most expansive season yet, featuring 14 events across an increased five continents. 

The 12-month SailGP Season 5 (Nov 2024 – Nov 2025) will start and finish in the United Arab Emirates and features new events in Auckland, Brazil, Germany and Switzerland.

Sydney holds a special place in our hearts, and we look forward to delivering another unforgettable event for our Aussie fans.”
