SailGP in a race to go green
Six teams showcased the inaugural season for SailGP in 2019 which seeks to deliver an annual, global sports league featuring fan-centric inshore racing among rival national teams. With identical F50 catamarans blistering across three continents and five venues, the climax was a $1 million winner-takes-all match race.
But the race is as much on the water as it is in the boardroom for commercial support to sustain the league. To help that sales pitch, SailGP is going green, balancing its globe-trotting format with a plan to reach zero carbon by 2025.
