Watch this high octane sport happen live at Cowes over the weekend of 10th and 11th August. Specially constructed viewing platforms mean you can see all the action from the shore – not to be missed!
The new SailGP is re-defining the sport of sailing. As a completely new global sports series featuring bold, cutting-edge technology and awe-inspiring athleticism, SailGP puts the fan at the center of the sport.
The racing takes place in some of the world’s most iconic city waterfronts, where athletes from rival nations will race head-to-head on the newly redefined F50 wingsailed catamarans, which fly above the water on wave-piercing hydrofoils at speeds of over 50 knots (60 mph).
The boats are engineered to be identical in every respect, designed to produce close, heart-stopping racing, with advanced audio/visual technology producing an “on board” fan experience.
The sailors – world champions, Olympic medalists, America’s Cup winners – represent the best young talent their nations have produced.
