This weekend's Spain Sail Grand Prix in Andalucía-Cádiz marks two years of the launch of SailGP's Women's Pathway. To celebrate the milestone, we round up some of the best photos of our female athletes.
The Women's Pathway is an initiative key to SailGP's aim to create an inclusive sporting championship with gender equity - where the best athletes have equal opportunity to compete together on the F50.
Since launching in Cadiz Season 2, the Pathway has evolved and now demands teams to offer increased training and race exposure for female athletes.
Key aims in Season 4 include teams training with the long term goal of developing a number of female athletes - a minimum of three female athletes per team, each season, with training and racing experience on the F50.
Teams must also always select at least one female onboard in all racing configurations.
SailGP is also delivering a program of development opportunities to complement individual and team development, while seeking a commercial partner to support the program.
Since the Pathway launched in Season 2, female athletes have been onboard all teams in 100% of races around the globe, honing their skills and providing a visible example for aspiring professional athletes.
