Rolex and Yachting

SAILGP

Rolex is the global Presenting Partner and exclusive Official Timepiece of the SailGP championship, a regatta circuit that pits the fastest sailing craft in the world against one another. It is raced on seas worldwide, on F50 foiling catamarans that seem to take flight across the water.

Innovation at the service of performance

Crews made up of some of the best sailors. Identical catamarans, with foils and a rigid wingsail, capable of reaching 50 knots, or nearly 100 km/h. Spectacular races that last 15 minutes at most. A season organized on the seas of five continents. Launched in 2019, the SailGP circuit has redefined the world of competitive sailing, utilizing innovative, continuously optimized catamarans. These flying yachts bear the colours of the countries they represent and embody the present and future of the sport.

The SailGP championship has also generated the Impact League, the Women’s Pathway programme and SailGP Inspire, initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability and diversity in the yachting world.
