In October 2018 Sydney will host the 4th Invictus Games and to mark 500 Days to Go until the Opening Ceremony Invictus Games Foundation Patron, Prince Harry, is heading to Sydney for the official launch.
RSYS & CYCA will help support RPAYC, who have been instrumental in providing sailing opportunities for wounded, injured and ill veterans, in running a demonstration Match Racing event in Farm Cove on Wednesday 7th June.
Prince Harry said it was an “easy decision” to name Sydney as the 2018 host city noting that Australia’s proud military heritage and Sydney’s iconic and welcoming reputation combined with its sports mad population made it the perfect destination.
The 2018 Games will take place in and around Sydney 20-27 October 2018 and will bring more than 500 competitors to Sydney from 18 Nations to compete in 10 sports.
Pince Harry, who served in the British Armed Forces, founded the Invictus Games to highlight the power of sport to rehabilitate and support our wounded, injured and ill active and veteran service personnel.
