On January 13/14, SailGP will steer its way to Abu Dhabi for the very first time as we fast approach a pivotal midpoint in an exhilarating season. Taking place at the iconic Mina Zayed, this historic event is poised to set the waters ablaze with adrenaline-pumping, close-to-shore action set against the stunning backdrop of the Abu Dhabi corniche and city skyline.
The season so far has been a thrilling rollercoaster. As the 7th stop on Season 4's action-packed 13-event calendar, Abu Dhabi marks the halfway point of the season, piling pressure on the league's 10 national teams. Will Tom Slingsby's return see the Aussies clinch their first win of the season, or will the Kiwis repeat their Dubai triumph, making it two from two in the UAE?
As the home of Global Partner, Mubadala, the landmark race in Abu Dhabi, a city steeped in a rich maritime heritage, signifies a momentous chapter in the SailGP saga as we add yet another iconic location to the ever expanding global roster of events.
As SailGP Inspire Partner, Mubadala and SailGP will also host the largest SailGP Inspire Program ever, engaging over 1000 children across five days, a testament to both Mubadala and SailGP’s commitment to developing the sport in the region and nurturing the next generation of sailing talent in the gulf.
Working with Abu Dhabi Sports Marine Club, Mubadala and SailGP will also be offering a bespoke foiling program to local young sailors – a historic milestone that embodies not just the thrill of the sport, but also the dedication to building a brighter sailing future in the heart of Abu Dhabi.
