SAILGP MAKES ITS HOLLYWOOD DEBUT

SailGP makes its Hollywood debut when two F50s – the world’s fastest sail race boats – take a starring role in the summer’s big blockbuster Tenet, a new sci-fi spy thriller by acclaimed director Christopher Nolan.

The much-anticipated blockbuster, starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh, was filmed across the world in seven locations – including Southampton, UK – and when the script required an epic sailing scene, SailGP answered the call.

Following Cowes SailGP in August 2019, two F50s – the Japan and U.S. boats – were rebranded exclusively for the Hollywood movie and SailGP’s world-class athletes took part in the filming, although it will be a struggle to spot them thanks to the magic of cinematography.

U.S SailGP helm Rome Kirby and SailGP Season 1 champion Tom Slingsby of the Australia team were two of the athletes involved and spent a week at the helm of the F50s – one white and one blue – setting up dramatic, boat-on-boat scenes in the Solent, under the watchful eye of Nolan from a helicopter. 

Famed for his directing roles in InceptionDunkirk and The Dark Knight Trilogy, no stone was left unturned to get the epic shots required in the script, although the plot was a closely guarded secret.

Keep your eyes peeled and see if you spot SailGP in its Hollywood debut!
