SailGP Cowes
Friday 14th  & Saturday 15th August 2020

The tour sees events in Sydney, San Francisco, New York, Cowes and Marseille. The British stage of SailGP is set during Cowes Week, using the Solent as its racetrack. Rival national teams from Australia, China, France, Great Britain, Japan and the United States battle it out in identical supercharged F50 catamarans, engineered for intense racing at electrifying speeds exceeding 50 knots (nearly 60 mph/100 kph).

On the water...

Spectating can be taken onto the water in one of our Rib powerboats which will allow your group to get as close as possible to the action – chartered exclusively to you for the day, a skippered Rib will give you complete freedom to dip in and out of spectating while also seeing what Cowes and the wider Solent has to offer. Alternatively enjoy on the water hospitality aboard a large luxury sailing yacht or powerboat  so you can sip a G&T while watching the action.
