US events postponed

SailGP has announced an updated schedule for the first half of its second season, with the opening events now set for the island of Bermuda and the southern Italian city of Taranto.

On 24 – 25 April, the Bermuda Grand Prix will set the stage for an expanded season that is planned to feature nine events. Following the opener, the first-ever Italy Grand Prix will be held over 5 – 6 June in Taranto.

Though San Francisco and New York were initially set to host the first events following SailGP’s Season 2 postponement, the league has shifted the schedule to ensure greater certainty and reduce travel in the early part of the year. The United States Grand Prix | San Francisco will now serve as the SailGP Season 2 Grand Final, and is planned to take place in April 2022.

Following the league’s restart in Bermuda, SailGP will move to Europe – where four of its eight national teams are based – for five grand prix events. As previously announced, the Great Britain Grand Prix | Plymouth will take place on 17 – 18 July, followed by the ROCKWOOL Denmark Grand Prix | Aarhus on 20 – 21 August. Two additional European host cities will be announced with the remaining season schedule.
