Pi said: “My vision is to create a catalyst for boating development in Canada, which will have a generational impact on our community and provide an ambitious goal for our athletes to represent our country internationally.”
“I invested in SailGP because I believe it reflects the future of the game – with its commitment to environmental sustainability, clean energy and social impact – and the races are incredibly entertaining and accessible.”
Join the Canadian teams, along with the best athletes in the sport Australia, Denmark, France, Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland and the United States in the third season, which is expected to spread over 2022 and 2023, covering ten events.
SailGP launched in 2018 and is currently in the final stages of its second season, with two more events in Sydney and San Francisco before SailGP Season Two is crowned champion. The news comes after a major event in Cadiz, Andalusia, which saw the biggest crowd of the season – both inside and outside the water – over the weekend of the two-day event, October 9th and 10th.
With two new expansion rights – the recent announcement that Sir Ben Ainsley has taken over the majority ownership of the Great Britain team SailGP and the news that ROCKWOOL became the operator of the Danish team at the beginning of the year – the World League is fast establishing itself as one of the most exciting new game attributes.
SailGP CEO Russell Coates said: “This is another exciting milestone for our global league. Glad.It really checks the model we installed for SailGP and it really is an important step in our journey with the World League.
“When Fred and Canada worked with the team, interest and purpose were an integral part of their team.
SailGP and the Canadian SailGP team are hosting the first SailGP event, exploring the ideal sailing destinations for fans and suitable host cities across the country.
