SailGP is high speed, high tech and high impact. This global sports championship combines cutting-edge tech, iconic global venues, elite athletes and record-breaking speeds to create the most exciting racing on water. Rival teams from the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Canada, France, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and Spain battle it out at iconic venues around the world in short, intense races for a total prize pot of $7 million.

Teams compete in identical hydrofoiling F50 catamarans that fly above the water at electrifying speeds approaching 100 km/h. Fan-centric and close-to-shore, each SailGP Championship culminates in a $2 million, three-boat, winner-takes-all Grand Final.

Despite not winning a single race on the tricky waters of Halifax Harbour, Emirates Great Britain were the most consistent team across the day with a 3-5-2 record to top the table with 23 points, ranking ahead of New Zealand on 22 and ROCKWOOL Denmark a further point back.

The Canadian hosts put on something of a showing for their passionate home support – at least following their seventh-place finish in the opening race. Two third places see Phil Robertson’s team well in the hunt for a podium finish and qualification for Sunday’s winner-takes-all Final, with their 20 points seeing them equal with Spain.

Two further Fleet Races are scheduled for Sunday and the congestion at the top of the table means a number of teams still have plenty to play for – with not a single team yet secured of qualification for the winner-takes-all Final.
