SailGP’s first ever visit to the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi will get underway this weekend, with the racing broadcast live on ITV on January 13-14.

The 10-strong F50 fleet will take to the iconic Mina Zayed and race across five fleet races before the top three teams proceed into the winner-takes-all Final. With 50 points, Australia sits at the top of the Championship leaderboard, despite not yet winning an event in Season 4, while ROCKWOOL DEN and New Zealand follow with 41 and 40 points respectively.
