SailGP sizzles in Sydney - Flashback

So great to be a part of the first ever SailGP, AND at home in Sydney. A big thanks to Oracle for the opportunity to give their Execs and top clients a real behind-the-scenes view to just how amazing our sport is, and for bringing the SailGP to us all.

The SailGP really is aiming to echo the Formula 1, and it was a whole new level for me professionally as well. Was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the team and, to have John Bertrand available for his insights as well!

Here is my sailing wrap of the event now that things have settled down. Really looking forward to the next edition in San Francisco on 4 & 5 May!
