What is SailGP Inspire?

SailGP Inspire: Forging the Future

Inspire is SailGP’s community, education and outreach initiative, powered by our belief that sailing can be a force for good.

Our goal: to leave a positive legacy and build a sustainable sport – by providing equal, life-changing opportunities and new career pathways for all, regardless of race or socioeconomic background.

Launched in Cowes, UK, in August 2019, and taking place at all subsequent grand prix events, SailGP Inspire comprises three innovative pathways for young people, students and aspiring sailors: Learning, Careers and Racing. SailGP Inspire works with each host venue and its partners RS Sailing, WASZP, Rooster and MarkSetBot to offer programs to the local community.

These allow people aged 9-23 to:

  • Experience sailing for the first time
  • Learn and be nurtured through engaging and innovative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)-based modules
  • Develop professional routes into the sport through internships, work experience and coaching
  • Gain valuable life skills as well as knowledge about health, nutrition and the environment
