Given the incredible speeds the F50 hits while racing, it’s no surprise SailGP’s number one priority is safety.

During the first event of Season 2, the Great Britain SailGP Team clocked a remarkable top speed of 94.8 km/h (51.2 knots/58.9 mph) – setting a new SailGP record – in rough conditions in Bermuda, with the wind speed topping 20 knots on the second day of racing.

The Brits made the most of the intense conditions on the Great Sound to set the new speed record, but the United States Team was not so lucky – being involved in a collision with Japan and then capsizing to end its event early.
