Tickets are now on sale for SailGP’s Canadian debut in Halifax on 1-2 June. The ROCKWOOL Canada Sail Grand Prix will mark the official start to summer when the world’s most exciting racing on water hits Halifax Harbour in just over two month’s time.

With an action packed race weekend planned, fans will enjoy opportunities to meet athletes in the fan zone on the Halifax waterfront, visit the Bluenose II and watch the SailGP Inspire Racing and weCANfoil demos, as well as take part in the myriad of activities planned throughout the city.

The ten national teams (from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Great Britain, France, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland and the United States) will be racing turbocharged F50 catamarans at upwards of 100-km/hr speeds in stadium-style racing close to the Halifax and Dartmouth shorelines, promising plenty of action for fans, when racing gets underway at 4:00 PM ADT on Saturday and Sunday.

The SailGP ticket offering for Halifax includes exclusive Waterfront Reserve and Waterfront Premium, both with front row viewing within an enclosed area on the Halifax waterfront boardwalk. Join fellow fans in the Waterfront Reserve area to enjoy live commentary, race coverage on large screens, afternoon entertainment, food and beverage concessions and an official SailGP merchandise kiosk. While Waterfront Premium ticket holders will be able to watch most exciting racing on water from another exclusive viewing area, with pre and post racing entertainment, as well as unlimited local food and drinks on offer.

With an unprecedented number of pre-sale registrations, the limited number of Waterfront Reserve and Waterfront Premium tickets for the ROCKWOOL Canada Sail Grand Prix are expected to sell quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.

The ROCKWOOL Canada Sail Grand Prix marks the first time that the Canada SailGP Team will race in home waters.
