SEEING IS BELIEVING
The ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix is coming to Ōtautahi, Christchurch - a two-day spectacle of exhilarating races, intense rivalries and action-packed entertainment.
BOAT RACING THAT WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY
SailGP is live action sailing as you’ve never experienced it before. It has to be seen to be believed.
Watch huge 2 tonne hydrofoiling catamarans fly weightless across the water at electrifying speeds; 15 meters long yet vying for glory that comes down to inches at the finish.
Witness the thrills, spills, daring maneuvers and near misses as the boats push their limits racing through Whakaraupō, Lyttelton Harbour.
SailGP is high-speed, high-tech and high drama all set against a party atmosphere and experienced up close – so close you can almost feel the spray on your face.
From nine teams over 11 events there can be only one winner. And the stakes have never been higher. The ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix is the last event before the grand finale in San Francisco. Watch the athletes lay it all on the line and be there to cheer on Kiwis Peter Burling, Blair Tuke and the New Zealand SailGP Team.
WHEN AND WHERE
