About SailGP
 
The annual, global sports league, began Friday 15th February, and was ten years in the making.
 
SailGP’s vessel of choice is the electrifying F50 catamarans.
 
Powered by a 24-metre wingsail and flying above the water on hydrofoils, the F50 marks a huge step forward. The F50 is expected to produce a 15 percent performance gain across most racing conditions compared to the AC50 class of the 2017 Americas Cup.
 
The fan-centric, inshore racing takes place in some of the most iconic harbours around the globe and culminates with a $1 million winner-takes-all match race. 
 
SailGP was created to engage and excite global sports fans year-round in a supercharged, fast-paced version of sailing aimed at increasing its mainstream popularity and introducing the next generation to the sport.
