SailGP fans can now cast their votes for the three teams they think will make the Final of the penultimate event of Season 3 - the ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix | Christchurch.

Preparations for the league’s first ever event in New Zealand are well underway, with the full, nine-strong hydrofoiling fleet cleared to race this weekend.

Tom Slingsby’s Australia retains a dominating 12-point lead at the top of the Championship leaderboard, but the battle is on between for the final two places in the top three.

Home favorites New Zealand in second has a thin-one point lead ahead of France in third, while Emirates Great Britain SailGP Team is just two points behind the French. Nicolai Sehested’s Denmark in fifth meanwhile retains an outside chance of disrupting the leaderboard ahead of the Season 3 Grand Final in May.

Racing takes place on Whakaraupō, Lyttelton Harbour between 15:00 - 16:30 NZDT on Saturday and Sunday. Full broadcast information and How to Watch details are HERE.
