• Collision with Spain during practice racing leads to penalty points for Emirates GBR
  • Team welcomes more than 350 students to base in Christchurch for climate education lessons

The Emirates Great Britain SailGP Team is pushing the learning curve despite limited time on the water ahead of the ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix this weekend. SailGP returns to Whakaraupō Lyttelton Harbour in Christchurch for the world’s most exciting racing on water on 23-24 March.

The Christchurch event follows the KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix in February, where Emirates GBR experienced difficult starts and finished in seventh place.

The event in Sydney was only the second for Emirates GBR Driver Giles Scott, who made his debut at the Abu Dhabi SailGP in January after taking over the role from Sir Ben Ainslie. The team left that event in sixth place on the Season 4 leaderboard, tied on 45 points with France and United States.
