Great Britain's VIT Farley has been crowned Champion of the 2021 eSailGP Championship following a thrilling Grand Final on Friday.
The 17-year-old VIT Farley, an avid sailor who idolises SailGP's very own Ben Ainslie and Tom Slingsby, beat MCES Pepito and fellow Brit Déjà Vu - the 2020 eSailGP Champion - in the winner-takes-all Final to win this year's Championship.
He qualified for the Grand Final by winning the Saint-Tropez Qualifer Final in September, with seven other players taking part in Friday's season-ending finale.
Déjà Vu (GBR), Kaan Mazlumca (TUR), MCES Pepito (FRA), GRE-9 LDLN (GRE) and UOL cparejo (ESP) all joined VIT Farley in the Grand Final having won Qualifier Finals for Bermuda, Taranto, Plymouth, Aarhus and Cadiz respectively. MCES_tangi2232 (FRA) and REVO_MProdigo (ITA) were selected as two Under-21 wildcards for the event.
At the Grand Final, following three fleet races involving all eight players, VIT Farley, MCES Pepito and Déjà Vu qualified for the final winner-takes-all race - with VIT Farley claiming victory to be crowned 2021 eSailGP Champion.
As well as celebrating his victory in the eSailGP Grand Final, VIT Farley is currently ranked first in the eSailing rankings. Friday's victory means he automatically qualifies for the eSailing World Championship, and also wins a real-life SailGP experience.
