The ultimate virtual battle for eSailGP glory
Introducing eSailGP - the official eSailing game of SailGP, the world's premier sail racing league. The world’s fastest virtual sail racing, eSailGP offers fans the chance to test their skills piloting the world’s fastest sail race boats in a virtual environment - which includes an opportunity to take on the world-class SailGP athletes in eF50s.
Launched in partnership with Virtual Regatta and World Sailing, the inaugural competition in 2020 featured seven qualification events over the course of the season, with each respective winner – plus an additional wild-card berth for a youth player – clinching a spot in the eSailGP Grand Final that was held August 14.
British eSailor Mike O’Donovan emerged the season champion, overtaking pre-race favorite Joan Cardona, a member of the Spain SailGP Team. O’Donovan’s win secured him a place in the eSailing World Championship Final and a ride on a real-life F50. The top eight from each eSailGP Qualifier also qualified for the eSailing World Championship Final Playoffs.
The 2021 eSailGP Championship format and dates will be announced by the end of 2020, alongside three invitational events to be held before SailGP Season 2 restarts in San Francisco in April 2021.
