This Tech Tuesday we go behind the scenes as SailGP athletes answer quick fire questions from Season 1 of the series. With the second season creeping in to start at the end of this moth, here’s a quick recap of the high intensity, action packed sailing you can expect from these amazing teams.
SailGP is sailing redefined. Established in 2018 and headquartered in London and San Francisco, SailGP is an annual, global sports championship featuring bold, cutting-edge technology and awe-inspiring athleticism. This is fan-centric, inshore racing that takes place in some of the most iconic harbours around the globe and culminates with a $1 million winner-takes-all match race. Rival national teams from Australia, China, France, Great Britain, Japan and the United States have been battling it out in identical supercharged F50 catamarans, engineered for intense racing at electrifying speeds exceeding 50 knots (nearly 60 mph).
The second season of the SailGP kicks off in Sydney on the 28th of February and promises to bring all the excitement and high-speed action from the first season.
