ADVERTISEMENT

SailGP has teamed up with marine services company BWA Yachting to deliver SailGP Adrenaline Yachts, a program that offers superyacht owners an on- and off-water experience at SailGP sports championship events in New York and Marseille.

SailGP races feature national teams from Australia, China, France, Great Britain, Japan and the U.S. battling it out in identical supercharged F50 catamarans reportedly reaching speeds of more than 50 knots.

“BWA Yachting is delighted to present this exciting experience to our clients and to work with SailGP in offering a bespoke program that will get owners, guests and crew up-close and personal with the teams and the thrill of the races,” stated BWA Yachting CEO Paschalis Patsiokas.

SailGP Adrenaline Yachts membership grants yacht owners a position in a designated superyacht viewing area on the course perimeter, as well a tour of the team bases and an opportunity to meet some of the world’s top sailors, according to the company. Complimentary merchandise and closing party tickets are also included.

The next event in SailGP’s inaugural season is set to take place in New York on June 21-22. The annual championship then moves to Cowes, England, on Aug. 10-11. The final event, on Sept. 20-22 in Marseille, France, will feature a winner-takes-all, $1 million championship match  between the season’s top two teams.
