SailGP – The need for speed

SailGP sets the pace in the world of yachting. With a bigger fleet and the schedule extended to 11 rounds, Season 3 of the global championship has produced even more high-octane action. Teams representing Canada and Switzerland have joined two-time champions Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, New Zealand, Spain and the United States, competing on world-famous waterways. These crews, skippered by some of the sport’s most decorated competitors, represent the best of the best, skilled athletes whose physical and mental powers are constantly tested. Higher speeds, closer racing, greater risk – competition among these technologically advanced foiling catamarans has been intense; in Saint-Tropez, France set a new speed record of 99.94 km/h. And there is more to SailGP than the racing alone. The series, supported by Rolex since its inauguration in 2019 as part of its partnership with yachting dating back more than 60 years, aims to promote diversity, sustainability and inclusion while inspiring the next generation of sailors.
