Appleby was also an Official Partner of the Bermuda Sail Grand Prix presented by Hamilton Princess in April, which launched SailGP’s Season 2. The eight national teams competing are Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United States.

Saint-Tropez boasts a rich maritime history and some of the finest sailing waters in the world. The Gulf of Saint-Tropez has hosted many famous sailing events – including the iconic Voiles de Saint-Tropez – and this fantastic nautical stadium will see the F50s racing close to shore along the iconic waterfront in front of the Môle Jean Réveille and the Allied Marines promenade, where the official spectator area will boast front row views on the seawall.

SailGP is an annual global sports championship featuring top-flight technology and the sport’s best athletes. National teams battle it out at speeds exceeding 50 knots in F50 catamarans that evolved from the foiling vessels first featured during the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017. As the world’s most cutting-edge sail racing league, SailGP is the first climate-positive sports organisation, going beyond a net zero carbon footprint in all business and event operations. Through SailGP’s gender equity initiative, for the first time, female athletes will be included in the training. SailGP Inspire, the global league’s community, education and outreach initiative will provide experiential learning through sailing for youth as well as hands-on practical work experience.
