Following three opening fleet races on Saturday, December 9, there will be further racing on Sunday to determine the three Finalists – who will then go head-to-head to be crowned event winner.

Australia are the current season leaders, sitting in first place on 43 points ahead of ROCKWOOL Denmark and the United States – who claimed their first win of Season 4 last time out in Cádiz.

At the other end of the table, Germany have just eight points to languish in last past, three points behind Switzerland in ninth.

Emirates Dubai Sail Grand Prix presented by P&O Marinas: What has been said

Russell Coutts, SailGP CEO: “The United States have lost some key team members they should have retained in my opinion, at least for the initial events to get Taylor Canfield comfortable in the driving seat. Most importantly perhaps, they’ve lost wing trimmer Paul Campbell-James who’s been acquired by the Canadian team.”

Ben Ainslie, driver for Emirates GBR: “We’ve got high expectations of ourselves and, when you’re racing, you want to be out there performing well.”
