Photos: 2024 SailGP Gets Underway In Bermuda

After crashing out in the previous event, Tom Slingsby’s Australia SailGP Team completely dominated the opening day of the Apex Group Bermuda Sail Grand Prix. In perfect foiling conditions on Bermuda’s Great Sound, the Aussies secured two race wins and a third to firmly secure the top spot on the event leaderboard ahead of Canada and Rockwool Denmark.

“Drama started before the fleet took to the Great Sound with the official news that Taylor Canfield’s US SailGP Team would not be on the startline for racing this weekend after the teams’ dramatic capsize in yesterday’s official practice racing. Data provided by the United States F50 defined the cause of the capsize as ‘user error’ – when wing trimmer Victor Diaz de Leon pressed a button which inverted the wing by accident when he was positioned on the starboard side of the boat.”
