There’s just a week to go before Season 4 kicks off in Chicago, with SailGP’s 10-strong F50 fleet doing battle across two days of adrenaline-fueled racing.

The fleet will go head to head across six fleet races and a three-boat final shootout, with the newly announced German SailGP Team making its racing debut on the waters of Lake Michigan.
