The countdown is on! F50s hit the water ahead of Sydney Harbour showdown

Sydney, Australia – 12/15/2021 – By SailGP – The countdown is on to the Australia Sail Grand Prix | Sydney presented by KPMG, and on Wednesday our F50s made a triumphant return to Sydney Harbour ahead of official racing getting underway.

For the third time in SailGP history, following events in 2019 and 2020, cutting-edge F50 catamarans took to the waters of Sydney Harbour, as our eight national teams took part in a practice session under the clear blue skies and blazing sunlight of New South Wales.

It was a sight to behold as hometown hero Tom Slingsby and his Australia SailGP Team sailed the famous waters of this iconic city, with Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge stunning backdrops to the practice session.

The hosts were the first team out on the water on Wednesday, with all their Championship rivals joining them over the next few hours, and you can check out some of the best pictures from the practice session below.
