Commenting on the expansion, SailGP managing director, Andy Thompson, said: “The fact that we are again expanding our season from 11 to 12 events, and now have many multi-year agreements in place, shows the continued demand to host events and the strong momentum the league continues to experience.”
“The impressive array of global locations and wide range of event title partners – with more to be announced soon – is great news for our passionate fans and partners alike and is further evidence of the growth and appeal our sport has on a global scale,” he said.
The league’s inaugural season, launched in 2019, comprised of only five events, with the new announcement highlighting the growth of sailing globally.
