SailGP returns to the French Riviera on September 10-11, 2022 for the Range Rover France Sail Grand Prix Saint-Tropez.
On Thursday the nine boat F50 fleet had their first Practice day in ideal sailing conditions for the wingsailed foiling F50 catamarans.
The second Practice day will be sailed on Friday, after the media conference at 08900hrs local time.
Racing on Saturday and Sunday will commence at 1430hrs local time.
The world-renowned village on the French Riviera, Saint-Tropez illustrates the Mediterranean art of living. Its famous bell tower, alleys, and its market give it an irresistible charm specific to Provence and September will be the perfect time for SailGP to make its return, after an extremely successful 2021 event.
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.
The Range Rover France Sail Grand Prix is supported by the City of Saint-Tropez as well as the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez both of which align with SailGP’s Race for the Future vision with a commitment to sustainable development, clean energy and inspiring young people.
