More events for SailGP Season 5

Published on July 9th, 2024

The SailGP sports league has released the Season 5 calendar, presenting the most expansive schedule to date with 14 events across an increased five continents. Held across 2024 and 2025, there will be three events in the Middle East while the tour visits Brazil, Germany, and Switzerland for the first time.

While the 13-event Season 4 schedule in 2023-24 had six events in North America (Chicago, Los Angeles, Bermuda, Halifax, New York, San Francisco), Season 5 returns to the California venues in March and New York in June.

After the league moved the New Zealand event during Season 4 to Christchurch when unable to secure a suitable venue in Auckland, SailGP will try again to make its debut in New Zealand’s largest city.

“SailGP’s 2024/2025 calendar is another significant milestone in our continued expansion across the globe, establishing events in new, strategically important growth territories, while bolstering existing fan bases in some of our most-loved venues to date.,” noted SailGP Managing Director Andrew Thompson.
