There is now just one week to go until the F50 fleet commences battle on the iconic waters of Sydney Harbour when the KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix gets underway on February 24-25.

The racecourse, race times and racing crews have now been confirmed and preparations are well underway. The league’s 10-strong fleet will hit the water, battling it out across five fleet races before the all-important three-boat, winner-takes-all showdown.

Sydney marks the 8th event of Season 4’s record-breaking 13-event calendar, which means teams will be putting it all on the line in an effort to move up the Championship leaderboard and reach San Francisco’s Grand Final.
