I deleted and re-added my Google Calendar from iCal and selected the delegates. Nothing improved. I rebooted and still could not see the delegates. However, I went back to (menu) Calendar > Preferences > Accounts > My Google Account > Delegation and clicked on the delegates again. They reappeared.
I then went to my actual Google Calendar (in the browser, not iCal) and added a new Calendar. I switched back to iCal and added the new delegate. All delegates dissappeared, again!
It seems like when your applying changes to your delegates they break in iCal. However, once all changes are done with, everything works fine.
A few things to note:
It's not necessary to reboot in order to restore the working order of Google delegates in iCal. You must exit iCal and force terminate the CalendarAgent process in the system monitor. When you re-open iCal the delegates slowly reappear.
Under the View menu you can choose to see all delegates and calendars by clicking Show Calendar List. A left sidebar will appear with all calendars and delegates.
By default your calendar will syncronize every 15 minutes. This can be changed under menu Calendar > Preferences > Accounts > Your Google Account under the Account tab. Nonetheless, you can force syncronize with the Cmd+R keys or clicking Refresh Calendars under the View menu.
Calendars can be filtered under the Window menu. If your calendars aren't showing up, make sure that Calendar is ticked under the Window menu. You can also use the Cmd+0 keys.

Thanks for the solution (force terminating CalendarAgent in Activity Monitor). That did it for now, although I wonder if it's only a temporary solution. I've seen other discussions about CalendarAgent being unstable and a memory hog. We shall see.

tried killing the calendar agent. nothing. still not showing all delegates. weird part is when I woke the mac up from sleep mode, I actually saw them slowly being removed from the delegate list.
strange. at least the iPhone and iPad are good.
May try adding account as exchange instead of CalDV to see if that matters

Same here - had them working, then changed my Google password.
Delegates appeared and disappeared with no pattern behind.
It tried a lot, including clean caches, removing and adding accounts and so on.
My current situation (which is stable for the last few days):
-My "main" calendar is available
-My "own" delegates (Read&Write) are available
-My shared delegates (Read only) completely disappeared - haven't seen them for 5 days on and any effort to bring them back (to even see them in Accounts->Delegate-Config failed).
I also tried to add my Goggle account as exchange which also failed (server is not responding...)

I didn't mention: OSX 10.8.2 Calendar 6.0
Another thing that turned out:
There are two entries in KeyChain for calendar.google.com which differ in the url - https://email@example.com/user/ vs. https://calendar.google.com/calendar/dav/xxx%40xxx.xxx/user/.
So one of them is url encoded and one is not; maybe Calendar is not able to handle that; maybe it's unrelated to our problem.
I also set up Caldav on my iPhone (using the mentioned url) and it's working flawless - so the problem is somewhere in Calendar, CalendarAgent, ...
Up to https I'm not able to debug / see what's going on; there is also a "-LogHttp... " parameter around, which had no effect for me.
