This weekend, the France Sail Grand Prix takes place in the iconic town of Saint-Tropez - and all the racing will be broadcast live on ITV.

The ten-strong F50 fleet heads down to the Côte d'Azur for the third successive campaign, with two events so far completed in Season 4 and the SailGP Championship shaping up to be a tight and competitive affair.

Australia currently top the table on 17 points after back-to-back US events in Chicago and Los Angeles, though Spain's first ever win in the latter event means Diego Botin's team are just one point behind in second.

ROCKWOOL Denmark sit third - also with 16 points - while Ben Ainslie's Emirates GBR have nine points after two events to sit sixth.

Meanwhile, Season 4 new-boys Germany unfortunately prop up the rest of the table without a single point to their name due to penalty point deductions from an incident in LA.

We are still at an early stage of the season, although the European leg of the campaign is a busy time and every point will prove valuable come the business end of the season in 2024.

And with the France Sail Grand Prix kicking off the European leg, there is sure to be plenty of drama on the iconic waters of Saint-Tropez on September 9-10 - and you can watch it all live in the UK!

France SailGP: What has been said?

France driver Quentin Delapierre has explained the decision to sign Jason Saunders as Flight Controller, with François Morvan heading to Switzerland in return.

“I’m just trying to follow my feelings and have no regrets," said Delapierre. "It’s a super high level sports league, so when you have to make you choice, you have to just trust yourself.

“His [Saunders'] philosophy to control the boat and the flying modes is the same as us - especially Kevin, who is really involved in flight control, so I believe Jason will give us something special.”

Meanwhile, SailGP commentator Stevie Morrison has had his say on Les Bleus' chances of victory on their home waters - a venue which traditionally doesn't bring the strongest wind speeds.

He said: “The fact that it’s a home event will be huge for them - we’re definitely early on in the season, so for any team there’s a lot of opportunity.

“Light winds don’t give a lot of opportunity for the boat handling and team work that the French are known for.

“The good thing for the French is that they’ve won an event before, so they know it can be done.”
