Appleby partners with France Sail Grand Prix – The Royal Gazette


The leading offshore law firm Appleby is the official partner of the upcoming France Sail Grand Prix.

Saint-Tropez, the world-famous village on the Côte d’Azur, will host the France Sail Grand Prix as the fifth event of the second season from September 11th to 12th.

Appleby was also an official partner of the Bermuda Sail Grand Prix, presented by Hamilton Princess in April, which ushered in SailGP’s second season.

The eight national teams competing are Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United States.

Saint-Tropez has a rich maritime history and some of the best sailing waters in the world.

The Gulf of Saint-Tropez has hosted many famous sailing events Рincluding the legendary Voiles de Saint-Tropez Рand in this fabulous water sports stadium, the F50s will race close to the coast along the iconic waterfront in front of the M̫le Jean R̩veille and the Allied Marines promenade where the official spectator area offers a front row view of the dike.

SailGP is an annual global sports championship featuring cutting edge technology and the best athletes in the sport.

National teams compete at speeds in excess of 50 knots in F50 catamarans that emerged from the foiling ships first unveiled at the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017.

As the most modern sailing racing league in the world, SailGP is the first climate-positive sports organization that goes beyond a net zero carbon footprint in all business and event processes.

For the first time, women athletes are also included in the training thanks to the SailGP initiative for gender equality.

SailGP Inspire, the global league’s community, education and outreach initiative, provides experiential learning through sailing for youth as well as hands-on work experience.

The law firm said, “Appleby is pleased to be an Official Partner of the France Sail Grand Prix | Saint Tropez. The two-day sailing event will be broadcast all over the world on live television.
