Quentin Delapierre marked his first anniversary as France driver by winning his first ever SailGP event on the Bay of Cádiz, beating the United States in the Final by the narrowest of margins

Neck and neck racing with Jimmy Spithill’s U.S. team throughout culminated in a tense last-minute battle between the two crews, and it was France who managed to cross the finish line just a single boats' length ahead of their rivals.

Tom Slingsby’s Australia, meanwhile, finished third in Cádiz, but they remain in first place in the Season Championship with 50 points from six events.
