With just two weeks to go until the Mubadala SailGP Season 3 Grand Final | San Francisco, we shine a spotlight on the contenders for the Impact League crown.

Next up is New Zealand, which has picked up podium positions at five events this season, including three first place finishes.

This puts the defending Impact League champions at the top of the leaderboard with 1416 points heading into San Francisco. However, the team has faced constant pressure from Denmark in second place, which is just two points behind.

Speaking about the fight to win Season 3’s podium for the planet, Kiwi driver Peter Burling said: “Whenever you see a timeline related to the Impact League, it always makes us feel very proud to see Live Ocean there and its partnership with the New Zealand team.

“As a team, obviously the Impact League is something that is incredibly important to us and now everyone’s super motivated to try and win and go back-to-back to win this season also.”

The winner of the Impact League will be announced at SailGP’s Champions For Change event ahead of the Mubadala SailGP Season 3 Grand Final | San Francisco.
