Singapore set to host Asia’s first Sail Grand Prix on January 14-15, 2023. The event, which is supported by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), will see the league’s 10 hydrofoiling F50 catamarans hit the waters in Singapore for the first time.
In the first event of a three-year deal, the ten teams competing in Season 3 – including new franchises Canada and Switzerland and returning nations Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United States – will race at Parkland Green at East Coast Park in the eighth event on the calendar.
Teams will race for two podiums in Singapore, as the world-first Impact League returns for Season 3, tracking the positive actions teams make in terms of sustainability and inclusivity.
As part of SailGP’s Better Sport Strategy, the Singapore Sail Grand Prix will also include female athletes as part of the league’s Women’s Pathway Program plus introduce the sport to young people from diverse backgrounds through SailGP’s youth and community outreach program – SailGP Inspire.
