Australia reasserted its league-defining dominance by winning Season 3 in spectacular style and securing the SailGP Championship three-peat on San Francisco Bay.

The Aussies claimed the league's biggest prize in a nail-biting sprint to the finish after going head-to-head with Peter Burling’s New Zealand and Ben Ainslie's Emirates GBR in the three-boat, winner-takes-all Grand Final.

The dominant performers in Season 3, Tom Slingsby's team also won the San Francisco event itself - coming out on top after five fleet races ahead of their stunning victory in the showpiece finale to SailGP Season 3.
