The results of SailGP’s 2023 anonymous athlete poll have been revealed after athletes from across the league were quizzed on various topics, from event locations to the sport’s biggest characters.

Elsewhere, Canada driver Phil Robertson was voted the most aggressive driver, while SailGP athletes also voted Canada as the team most likely to cause a crash and the team they’d least like to sail for.

The worst comms mantle was handed to the USA, while the athlete SailGP’s sailors most wanted to see enter SailGP was league CEO Russell Coutts himself.
