Private Charter Harbour Day Cruise:
This Sydney Harbour Private Charter is ideal for groups up to 20 guests, assuring you and your guests receive a personal and intimate experience onboard this classic Swan 65. We will let you take the helm, and help us sail to a secluded beach where you’ll be able to swim and explore the bay. Alternatively, you can jump on-board for our Twilight cruise, where you can relax while watching the lights in the harbour.
The itinerary will depend on the weather condition of the day but the classic route includes passing Sydney Opera House, under Sydney Harbour Bridge, and other highlights along Sydney Harbour. Our harbour sailing cruises are designed to be flexible and exciting so we encourage discussing the itinerary on the day with the skipper so he can recommend what is best and highlights few hidden spots.
There is a great sound system with Bluetooth, and a large fridge, plus 2 large eskies on board. Price includes BYO fee which includes the use of all onboard facilities - plates, glasses, cutlery, utensils, condiments. We can organise catering for you at extra cost.

**Summer Harbour Regatta: **
Are you looking for a race around Sydney? We offer the opportunity to participate in an exciting sailing regatta on a high-performance boat and experience a unique and interactive way to (re)discover the Harbour in different lights with the great views of Sydney City at night from the water. You can either have a go taking the helm or trimming the sails with the crew or simply sit back and enjoy the sights. There is a short “training sail” with Eve professional sailors, to run through the basics and safety of the yacht, as well as running through a few manoeuvres, it will also help us assess your level and coach you accordingly. We will then assign you to a role that will be challenging but still within your range of skills and previous experience.
These races are non-spinnaker and start at 6:00 pm every Wednesday from the 7th of October, except for the first two when the races will start at 5:30 pm. This experience is 3 hours in duration and runs from 4.30 - 7.30 pm. Minimum of 6 guests are required to go ahead. Ideal for the beginner who wants to see what it’s like on the water.
