The Ahoy Ball – 2021

Due to on-going Covid outbreaks and restrictions, we have again postponed this event, and there will be no Ahoy Ball in 2021.
We have rescheduled – stay tuned for more details.

Spend a spectacular evening cruising Sydney Harbour on The Royale, while swinging out against a backdrop of Sydney’s most famous landmarks, with fabulous vintage DJs to keep you dancing throughout the night.

Join us for the 3rd annual Ahoy Ball. If you’ve been before, you’ll want another trip around the harbour with your swing friends. We all missed out in 2020 and 2021, so we’re excited to get on board again.

The boat leaves 7:30pm SHARP (so don’t be late or you’ll miss the boat, literally!), and then we’ll be cruising the night away until 10:30pm.
A night for dancing, hanging out and taking some cool selfies. Maybe there’ll be a Harbour Shim Sham! 🙂 It’s a perfect evening for your non-dancing friends as The Royale has plenty of chilled areas where you can just enjoy the sights of Sydney.
