As we reported earlier, Sting and family are indeed in Syndey. the Daily Mail dedicated an article on this issue:
After spending Christmas in their Wiltshire country estate, Sting and wife Trudie Styler and their their four children Bridget ‘Mickey’ Michael, 23; Jake, 22; Eliot Paulina, 17; and Giacomo Luke, 12; flew to Sydney earlier today. The family went straight from the airport to Sydney Harbour, where they boarded the Phoenix yacht, which they have hired for the duration of their trip.
It is expected the family will join thousands of Sydneysiders to watch the annual New Year’s Eve firework display over Sydney Harbour Bridge next week. Sting has chosen an impressive vessel to charter for his New Year’s Eve break.
At a fee of £16,800 a day, the Phoenix comes with 2 VIP double state rooms, 1 twin and 1 double double room.
Among the amenities is a LCD plasma TV, scuba-diving and jet-skiing equipment, spa, gymnasium, and top-of-the-range music system.
The 35-metre yacht can reach a top cruising speed of 12 knots.
