The stunning series climax to the inaugural SuperFoiler Grand Prix will be delivered thanks to a new broadcast and event location partner Expr3ss!

The debut championship has taken the world's best sailors to five unique destinations across Australia. Comprising legs in Adelaide, Gold Coast, Geelong, Busselton and finally Sydney the crew and the SuperFoilers that power her will have clocked up more than 12 thousand kilometres of travel – the same distance as Sydney to Los Angeles.

With just nine points splitting first and last and twelve points on offer for the winning team in the last regatta, the Expr3ss! SuperFoiler Grand Final in Sydney will determine who in the star-studded circuit will be crowned the first ever series champion and holder of the Ben Lexcen Trophy.

"Expr3ss! deploys world leading predictive hiring technology to help cut through the clutter to select the best candidate for a role and that's what we are doing – using cutting edge tech to determine who finishes up on top," said SuperFoiler CEO Bill Macartney.

"The SuperFoiler is innovative, powerful, flexible, fast and proudly Australian – just like Expr3ss! Bill and his team cast the net globally and recruited the best sailors on the planet to compete in this series. We are proud to be involved in this initiative that also uses disruptive technologies to bring efficiencies to selecting any team" said Expr3ss! co-founder and MD, Carolyne Burns.

"SuperFoiler relied on data to help select the right candidates for their start up series and there is no doubt the performances, thrills and entertainment those recruits have produced has justified that decision. We look forward to deploying our proven expert selection algorithm to help in the SuperFoiler recruiting drive for the next series," said Liz van Zyl, Marketing and Communications Manager at Expr3ss!

The Expr3ss! SuperFoiler Grand Final - Sydney will reach its epic conclusion on Sydney Harbour across Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of March 2018.

The Expr3ss! SuperFoiler Grand Final - Sydney will be live streamed on www.superfoiler.com
