Brace yourself for high-speed thrills as Sail Grand Prix launches its first-ever Abu Dhabi race, promising an adrenaline-fuelled experience unlike any other.
Get ready to witness history in the making as Sail Grand Prix (GP), the world’s most exciting water racing spectacle, kicks off the 2024 season with its inaugural event in Abu Dhabi from January 13 to 14. The Mubadala Abu Dhabi Sail Grand Prix presented by Abu Dhabi Sports Council promises an adrenaline-pumped show amidst the stunning backdrop of Mina Zayed, the capital’s historic port.
Offering an immersive experience, this global championship features national teams competing in high-tech, high-speed races across the globe in identical hydrofoiling F50 catamarans that reach speeds nearing 100 km/h. The close-to-shore racing unfolds over two days, with teams earning season points based on their ranking, leading to the Grand Final showdown at the last event of the season. For exclusive access on land, the Premier Waterfront Grandstand offers upgraded seating, live commentary and more. Alternatively, the Waterfront Grandstand promises prime views of the flying catamarans, an array of food and drink options and live race broadcast.
For an insider’s view, the Team Base Tours offer an exclusive glimpse into the high-tech F50 race boats and the preparation behind the scenes, providing a unique opportunity to witness the athletes and their cutting-edge vessels up close.
Additionally, boat owners can get within 50m of the high-speed racing action, enjoying live commentary and close-up views of the F50 catamarans, with the programme offsetting their carbon footprint for each race day. Meanwhile, the SailGP Adrenaline Yacht programme provides superyacht owners a premier racing view at Mina Zayed’s course perimeter, with exclusive access to the SailGP event.
