SAN FRANCISCO – March 13, 2020 – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the San Francisco SailGP event scheduled for May 2-3 has been canceled.
SailGP CEO Sir Russell Coutts said: “We are of course disappointed to cancel our event scheduled for May 2-3 in San Francisco. This decision has been made to avoid increasing the already significant risk of COVID-19. Health and safety must be the top priority across the world during this unprecedented situation and it is our responsibility to ensure we do not further the spread of this pandemic.”
All options are being explored in order to maintain a full schedule for SailGP’s second season. Further announcements will be made in due course.
