SailGP brings an exciting new dimension to sailing. State-of-the-art technology combines with a spirit of innovation to produce spectacular competition as identical boats, that seemingly defy the laws of gravity, achieve exceptional speeds. But SailGP races are more than breathtaking spectacles. They are also demanding, requiring crew members to master multiple skills – traditional and technical – and perform with athleticism and intelligence as they strive for performance excellence. This global championship pushes the boundaries of yachting in the same way Rolex pushes those of watchmaking. The brand has been Presenting Partner and Official Timepiece since the competition’s inception in 2019, sharing a philosophy of constant improvement. Discover more https://on.rolex.com/2XQVU4S
Rolex has always associated with activities driven by passion, excellence, precision and team spirit. The Swiss watchmaker naturally gravitated towards the elite world of yachting six decades ago and the brand’s enduring partnership now encompasses the most prestigious clubs, races and regattas, as well as towering figures in the sport, including ground-breaking round-the-world yachtsman Sir Francis Chichester and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, Sir Ben Ainslie. Today, Rolex is Title Sponsor of 15 major international events – from leading offshore races such as the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and the biennial Rolex Fastnet Race, to grand prix competition at the Rolex TP52 World Championship and spectacular gatherings at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Swan Cup. It also supports the exciting SailGP global championship in which national teams race identical supercharged F50 catamarans on some of the world’s most famous harbours. Rolex’s partnerships with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Royal Ocean Racing Club, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Yacht Club Italiano, New York Yacht Club and Royal Yacht Squadron, among others, are the foundation of its enduring relationship with this dynamic sport.
