SailGP selects Ocean Media

Ocean Media partners with SailGP for a fourth year of adrenaline-fuelled racing.

29 November 2022


Ocean Media has been reappointed as Official Adrenaline Yachts & Charter Program Partner for KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix | Sydney Season 3.

The global racing championship will return to the iconic Sydney Harbour on 18 and 19 February 2023.

The SailGP Adrenaline Yachts program, available through Ocean Media, offers exclusive vantage points and luxury inclusions to complement the high speeds and high drama of SailGP. Packages provide access on both race days (18 and 19 February), plus the official practice day, 17 February.


Ocean Media Managing Director, Hillary Buckman said, “We’re thrilled to be entrusted with the position of Official Adrenaline Yachts & Charter Program Partner for the fourth time in a row.

“The Australia event on the 18 and 19 February will set Sydney Harbour alight, and with our program, up to 50 boats can take advantage of a prime viewing position on the water.

“Aside from the cut-throat competition in an awe-inspiring location, there are also unrivalled networking and socialising opportunities, as well as the top-quality catering options and corporate package,” she said.

Last summer, an estimated 20,000 fans lines Sydney Harbour to watch the 50-foot hydrofoiling catamarans fly over the water at breathtaking speeds. In 2023, even more spectators from across Australia and overseas are expected to witness the most exciting racing on water.

Competition will be fierce for event nine of the 11-stop global championship, as Tom Slingsby and his Australia SailGP Team fight to maintain their current position at the top of the SailGP Season 3 leaderboard.

The Australia SailGP Team will compete against eight rival nations from Canada, Denmark, France, Great Britain, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

All teams are laser-focused on taking home the championship trophy, and the honour of being crowned champion of SailGP Season 3.

Likewise, the anticipation is building for yacht owners, corporate and charter guests keen to experience the heart-stopping excitement of SailGP on Sydney Harbour.

“Everyone loves the thrill of being so close to the incredible F50 foiling catamarans as they cut through the water at close to 100 kilometres an hour,” said Buckman. “Don’t miss the F50s when the ignite Sydney Harbour in 2023!”
