SailGP will bring nail-biting action to Cowes, on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 August, for what will be the penultimate event in the global championship’s inaugural season.
Racing just metres from the shore off Egypt Point, Cowes SailGP will be a heart-stopping spectacle for fans visiting during the first weekend of the world-famous Cowes Week regatta.
The Great Britain SailGP Team – skippered by Olympian Dylan Fletcher and comprising of some of the country’s top sporting talent – are planning to put on a show for the home crowd as they take on rival teams from Australia, China, France, Japan and United States. All six teams will race in identical 50-foot foiling catamarans at speeds capable of breaking sailings elusive 50 knot speed barrier.
With an array of ticketing options both on shore and on the water as well as a free-to-access Race Village between Cowes Green and Egypt Point, fans can place themselves in the heart of the action.
Spectators can get prime shore-side views of the racecourse with reserved seats all day in the SailGP Grandstand or upgrade to a privileged ringside position with Cruise Premier, an all-inclusive premium on-water hospitality option.
Another way to see the action is through one of the official Cowes SailGP charter companies, Marine Events or Solent Events, for a bespoke private charter package. Boat owners can sign up to the SailGP Boater Programme to access designated spectator zones on the racecourse perimeter to enjoy racing from the comfort of their own boat.
