Great Britain Sail Grand Prix – Official Spectator Boats

Powered by Nature™, SailGP is adrenaline-fuelled racing as eight teams go head-to-head in iconic venues across the globe and this July it’s coming to Plymouth! The championship will return to UK shores 17th & 18th July for the third event in Season 2.

Great Britain Sail Grand Prix - Official Spectator Boats Information

Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, has been selected to host SailGP’s Season 2 UK grand prix after a bid process involving five other cities. Famed for its rich maritime history and planned home of the UK’s first national marine park. The adrenaline-filled racing between competing nations will take place on Plymouth Sound in partnership with Plymouth City Council, with support from Associated British Ports, English Cities Fund and Sutton Harbour Group.

Come and view the thrilling action from the water onboard one of our official spectator boats, with privileged views.

With an impressive line-up of world-class sailors and top sailing nations, amongst them the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, Plymouth’s own Sir Ben Ainslie.

Ainslie said: “For us as a British team there is nothing better than racing in front of a home crowd and we are incredibly excited about the prospect. There is an element of nostalgia for me personally, having grown up and learned to sail in the West Country and now all these years later coming back to race on the international stage. Plymouth is a fantastic sailing venue with a natural amphitheatre for the fans to watch these amazing F50s.”
