From San Francisco to Saint-Tropez to Sydney, the inaugural Sail Grand Prix is now arriving in Singapore.
With the continued global expansion of Sail Grand Prix, the iconic city-state of Singapore has been added to the international sailing competition’s Season 3 calendar. Singapore is set to host Asia’s first-ever Sail Grand Prix on January 14–15, 2023.
In this highly anticipated event, the league’s nine international teams will sail with their high-tech, high-speed, and razor-sharp hydrofoil F50 catamarans and race in the waters of Singapore for the first time. This is the eighth leg of the eleven-stop global championship, which was previously held in San Francisco, Saint-Tropez, Sydney, and now, Singapore.
