SailGP is redefining sailing with a global racing championship combining cutting-edge technology with extraordinary skill and athleticism. National teams consisting of five on-board crew, race identical foiling catamarans in the world’s most famous harbours, skimming the water at speeds exceeding 50 knots. As Presenting Partner and Official Timepiece of SailGP, Rolex further demonstrates its status as a committed partner of yachting, a sport it has supported for more than 60 years.
Rolex has always associated with activities driven by passion, excellence, precision and team spirit. It naturally gravitated towards the elite world of yachting six decades ago and today supports the most prestigious clubs, races and regattas. The brand 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 new SailGP series, where national teams race in supercharged F50 catamarans on some of the world’s most famous harbours. Rolex’s partnerships with the likes of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, New York Yacht Club and Royal Yacht Squadron are the foundation of its enduring relationship with this dynamic sport.
