Los Angeles Sail Grand Prix
LA Event Mark

Los Gallos claim first ever event win with historic victory in LA.

Spain made history in Los Angeles, beating Season 3 champions Australia and ROCKWOOL Denmark to claim its first ever SailGP event win.

Diego Botin’s young crew overcame light wind conditions by minimizing maneuvers and sailing the shortest distance to trounce ROCKWOOL DEN and Australia in front of sell-out shoreside crowds.

The win came after Spain scraped into the Final by a one-point margin over Canada - meaning they managed to convert their first Final appearance into a first event win in four seasons.

The victory followed a period of upheaval and uncertainty for the young Spanish team - with former flight controller Botin only becoming driver in February 2023 - and it moved them up into second in the Championship rankings.
