Rare thrill to help feed those in need
Published on May 13th, 2020
While the second season of the SailGP league is under postponement due to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States SailGP Team has joined forces with the ALL IN Challenge which aims to be the world’s largest digital fundraiser in history by raising tens of millions of dollars to feed those in need.
The ALL IN Challenge was launched by Mark Cuban and Fanatics.com and more than a few celebrities and sports stars have contributed ultra-exclusive VIP experiences to help raise money for USA food banks to help the COVID-19 response. All of the money raised – 100% – goes to charity.
As of today the total is over $41 million.
With an opening bid of $10,000 and a closing date in one week, the winner will receive a trip of a lifetime to the San Francisco or New York SailGP race events in 2021. Flights and three-night hotel accommodations will be covered, and you’ll get to practice and dine with this all-American team before cheering them on to victory from the best seats on the water.
As an honorary guest of the U.S. SailGP Team, this ultra-exclusive VIP experience will be highlighted by an adrenaline-filled thrill ride during practice aboard the fastest sail race boat in the world alongside the team. You and a guest will then have access to SailGP’s acclaimed and all-inclusive Adrenaline Lounge to watch the high-octane racing as the U.S. Team goes head-to-head with six other nations in pursuit of sailing’s largest monetary prize—$1 million.
Repeat: You get to ride on the F50 catamaran, a rare opportunity to feel the speed of this foiler.
Plus, U.S. SailGP Team helmsman Rome Kirby and SailGP CEO Sir Russell Coutts (five-time America’s Cup winner and Olympic gold medalist) will take you behind the scenes of the private team area to see the incredible technology of the F50 catamaran. Finally, to complement your on-water experience with some of the best in the sport, you’ll also have the opportunity to board a chase boat during a live race, placing you in the middle of the heart-pumping action.
