SailGP launches ticket sales for Great Britain Sail Grand Prix

Tickets for the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix, taking place in Plymouth over 17 – 18 July, are now available.

Following the action-packed season opener in Bermuda in April, with a triumphant win for Ben Ainslie’s Great Britain SailGP Team, and then the first-ever Italy Sail Grand Prix in June, SailGP will return to UK shores, promising high speed, high tech and high drama.

Fans in Plymouth will be able to witness some of the most incredible sail racing scenes both on and off the water and get up close to the impressive line-up of world-class athletes and top sailing nations representing Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, Spain, New Zealand and the United States.

The Great Britain SailGP Team will be looking to maintain its place at the top of the leaderboard at its home event and will be hoping that fans come out in style to cheer on the red, white and blue boat. Plymouth Hoe provides a spectacular viewpoint for fans to immerse themselves in the action as they watch the foiling F50 catamarans, capable of speeds of nearly 60mph.

A limited number of tickets for the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix in Plymouth can be purchased online from now, at SailGP.com/GreatBritain. Additional tickets will be released inline with the Government Covid updates.
