The Sydney to Hobart yacht race is one of Australia’s most iconic events, keenly followed at the close of each year by yachting fanatics and everyday punters.
Your view of the race doesn’t have to be limited to the sidelines or a TV screen. Adagold Luxe has a more immersive, glamorous experience in mind. This year we’re inviting small groups of enthusiastic yachties to embrace the race fever from a viewpoint many could only dream of. Your exclusive encounter with the 2018 Sydney to Hobart yacht race awaits…
Immerse yourself in the pre-race excitement aboard a superyacht
On Boxing Day, climb aboard Ocean Alliance’s opulent superyacht, Masteka, and watch as race preparations unfold in Sydney Harbour. Indulge in a glass of champagne and head to the deck for your completely unique view of the fleet of contestants. Feel the buzz of excitement in the air and on the water as the yachtsmen and women make final checks, liaise with the media and get ready to set sail. If the weather is fine, relax in the on-deck spa and analyse the odds. Maybe even take a chance and place a bet. Be a part of the buzzing atmosphere and palpable thrill in the harbour as the race begins.
Unravel Hobart’s cultural and gastronomic history
On the second day of the race, you will be whisked to Hobart via a luxury private jet, to enjoy a handful of Tasmania’s finest cultural venues. Visit MONA’s cutting-edge exhibitions, followed by an exquisite luncheon at one of the city’s award-winning restaurants. The itinerary is up to you; take a stroll around the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens or indulge in a little boutique shopping in the CBD. Adagold can organise all of your ground transportation throughout the city, including any short excursions to landmarks such as Mount Wellington, with its sweeping views of Tasmania’s stunning landscape. After a day of exploring, retire to one of Hobart’s most elegant boutique hotels, either the MACq 01 or the Henry Jones, depending upon availability. Lay back on your luxurious bed and catch up on the race updates before enjoying a restful sleep in preparation for embarking on an exhilarating experience of the event’s final hours the very next day.
View the final leg of the race with an exclusive helicopter ride
As the competing yachts make their way down the Tasmanian coastline, you’ll have the best seat in the house: a birds-eye view of the final stages of the race! Your group will take to the air in a lavishly comfortable helicopter for a once-in-a-lifetime experience of this iconic Australian event. Afterwards, you can revel in post-race festivities as Hobart comes alive, celebrating victories harbourside with a decadent tipple or two and a spectacular view of the water.
