COVID-19 Safe Event Plan

SailGP has been working closely with Plymouth City Council, Public Health England, local authorities and independent experts to ensure the safety and the quality of the spectators’ experience at the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix in Plymouth.

So that all guests can enjoy the event, SailGP has put together a COVID-19 Safe Event plan – in-line with Government and local authority risk-level, advice and guidelines – in order for everyone to safely enjoy their time at the event.

Guidelines //

  • CAPACITY & SOCIAL DISTANCING: SailGP is fortunate to have a large open park at Plymouth Hoe as the main Spectator Area with wide views of a large race area across Plymouth Sound. The event spectator capacity is capped to ensure spectator comfort, safety and appropriate social distancing.
  • TRACK & TRACE: Entry to the Spectator Area is ticketed which confirms tracing requirements. Spectators are required to register their details online to obtain a ticket. Entry will not be permitted without a ticket.
  • HEALTH SCREENING: Health declaration, screening, observations and contactless temperature checks may be a requirement as a condition of entry into the event.
  • FACE COVERINGS: Face coverings are required (unless exempt) whilst moving within the grounds and the perimeter, apart from whilst eating and drinking or in such other circumstances as may be communicated by the organisers. Face coverings must safely cover the nose and mouth
  • CLEANING & SANITISATION: SailGP is implementing an enhanced cleaning program and sanitisation stations will be available throughout the Spectator Area and at key locations.
  • REDUCED CONTACT: The Spectator Area is a cashless site and payment can only be made by card to purchase merchandise, food & beverage and concessions etc.
  • MEDICAL TEAM: SailGP’s event medical team is on standby throughout the event. If a spectator is feeling unwell or showing COVID-19 symptoms, please inform the medical team immediately.
  • SYMPTOMS: Please do not travel or attend the event if infected by COVID-19 or knowingly been in contact with someone who is infected, or have been experiencing any of the following COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days:
