On 17 and 18 December 2021, the Ocean Club welcomed VIP guests on board the luxury motor yacht Caviar for two incredible days of SailGP racing.
For the third time, SailGP lit up Sydney Harbour with some of the best sailing seen from the F50s, with high winds on the final day making for particularly exciting viewing.
Tom Slingsby and the Australian team won the Sydney event, opening up a two-point championship lead in front of their US rival for the finals in March 2022 in San Francisco.
Both afternoons, our guests enjoyed some of the most incredible experiences they’ve ever had out on the water, accompanied by exquisite Laurenti French Champagne and wine, gin and vodka from Wine and Only, as well as local beer from White Bay Beer. Naturally, drinks were served with the finest black caviar from Simon Johnson and the freshest oysters and prawns from Musumeci Seafoods.
On both days, over fifty guests enjoyed Sydney’s oldest but newest charter yacht, Caviar. Built in 1955, Caviar started life as an Australian minesweeper before being decommissioned. Many years later, she has been brought back to life by a passionate owner, determined for her to become one of Sydney’s most charming charter experiences.
“Inviting our Ocean Club guests on board Caviar, one of Australia’s most unique luxury charter yachts, for exceptional views of the F1 racing on the harbour was such a pleasure,” said Hillary Buckman, Managing Director of Ocean Media.
We would like to give special thanks to our valued Elite sponsors Benetti Yachts, Pantaenius Yacht Insurance, Tourism Australia and ACME Quality Marine Clothing, together with our Ocean Partners White Bay Beer, Cotswold InOut Furniture, Analu Luxury Italian Interiors and Laurenti Champagne.
The Ocean Club tender service was supplied by Windcraft’s new RYCK tender, and our stunning 1955 luxury charter motor yacht Caviar and her exceptional crew offered us the best platform to view the racing on Sydney Harbour – you simply can’t get any closer to the action!
Ocean Media was again proud to be appointed an Official Supplier by SailGP for the third year.
