The wait is finally over. SailGP, the most competitive racing on water, will come to Britain's Ocean City, Plymouth, on 17-18 July 2021 for the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix.

On the southwest coast of England in an area famed for its rich maritime history and a natural amphitheater, eight competing nations will race it out in identical fast foiling F50 catamarans reaching speeds exceeding 60mph.

This is the third event in its global championships' calendar, following opening events in Bermuda and Taranto, Italy. The event is held in partnership with Plymouth City Council and with support from Associated British Ports, English Cities Fund and Sutton Harbour Group.

Plymouth Hoe provides a spectacular viewpoint for fans to immerse themselves in some adrenaline-fueled racing as our cutting-edge F50s go head-to-head within the natural amphitheatre of Plymouth Sound.

Tickets are almost sold out and going fast - make sure you don't miss out!

Racing takes place between 2pm and 3:30pm on Saturday 17 July, and 2:30pm and 4pm on Sunday 18 July. Detailed race times to follow.

The official spectator area will open at 11:30am on both days.
