The new F50 liveries of the New Zealand and Emirates Great Britain SailGP Teams have been revealed as the teams took to the water of iconic Sydney Harbour to begin training.
The British F50 has undergone a complete transformation after Emirates came on board as the team’s first ever Title Sponsor. Emirates’ signature “Fly Better” logo is now visible on the Great Britain F50 race boat, with prominent branding on the center of the wing and hull.
The F50’s previous electric blue color scheme meanwhile has been replaced by the airline’s characteristic and instantly recognizable red.
The Kiwis meanwhile hit the water for the first time in the F50 previously used by Canada and has adapted the team’s red and white livery to lighter Kiwi-themed branding and colors for the Sydney event.
New Zealand’s permanent F50 - which was struck by lightning in Singapore - is currently undergoing repair at SailGP Technologies in New Zealand. It is hoped the Kiwi team will be reunited with their F50 on the start line of the ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix in March.
