Excitement is mounting for another spectacular first for SailGP; as the world’s most exciting racing on water heads to the city of sand dunes and sparkling skyscrapers for the first time, to deliver an adrenaline-packed weekend at the Dubai Sail Grand Prix presented by P&O Marinas, on 12-13 November.
Dubai is famous for its amazing buildings – including the beautiful Museum of the Future and the Burj Khalifa (at 830m the world’s tallest building)- and vast shopping malls that are home to huge aquariums and indoor ski slopes, all happily sitting beside a rich history and culture. This includes the traditional Souks, including the Spice and Gold Souks lining the Dubai Creek, which itself is home to traditional fishing Dhows and offers direct access to the beautiful, warm, blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. Here, fans in Dubai will experience the incredible excitement of the foiling F50 catamarans for the first time.
Dubai is famously a melting pot of nationalities and cultures, so every national SailGP team is guaranteed a large following on the dockside. Excitement and drama will be nonstop as the fleet of identical F50s fly by spectators at speeds of up to 100 kph!
In the last Season 3 event of 2022, the Dubai Sail Grand Prix is the 7th stop of the global sailing championship after the Spain Sail Grand Prix | Andalucía – Cadíz. Dubai Sail Grand Prix presented by P&O Marinas is held in collaboration with P&O Marinas, the City of Dubai and the Dubai Sports Council.
