The countdown is on to the first Sail Grand Prix event in the country — And it will make its debut in the San Francisco Bay on May 4 and 5.
SailGP is a new annual global sailing championship race. Teams from the United States, Australia, China, France, Great Britain, and Japan will be represented.
The event features the world’s fastest on-water racing, including Team USA’s Rome Kirby and Mac Agnese. KRON4’s Kate Rooney sat down with them to discuss the event.
“We are really excited to get on the water in San Francisco, one of the best sailing venues in the world,” said Kirby. “San Francisco always delivers great sailing conditions, which will provide really exciting racing. We didn’t get the result we wanted in Sydney, but we learned a lot and have far more confidence going into this next event. With the support of the home crowd, we’ll be looking for some strong results.”
This race is free to the public but special ticket options are available to enhance your experience.
