SailGP is sailing redefined. Established in 2018 and headquartered in London and San Francisco, SailGP is an annual, global sports championship featuring bold, cutting-edge technology and awe-inspiring athleticism. The fan-centric, inshore racing takes place in some of the most iconic harbors around the globe and culminates with a $1 million winner-takes-all match race. Rival national teams from Australia, China, France, Great Britain, Japan and the United States battle it out in identical supercharged F50 catamarans, engineered for intense racing at electrifying speeds exceeding 50 knots (nearly 60 mph).

The Japan SailGP Team boat was unveiled at Cockatoo Island on Sydney Harbour on 5 Feb 2019. The Japanese F50 catamaran – which will be raced for the first time on Sydney Harbour on 15-16 February – features a clean white hull with a distinctive red rising sun on the bows. The striking wing design is based on traditional Japanese artwork, Ukiyoe.
