We’ve handpicked some of Plymouths best events happening this summer, being based in the city centre makes us the best base to explore Plymouth and the local events.
July 30th-31st SailGP Great Britain Sail Grand Prix.
SailGP will host its Great Britain Sail Grand Prix in Plymouth for the second year running, following a bumper event in 2021, which saw an estimated 27,500 spectators enjoying the spectacle that brought £6.9 million into the local economy.
The thrilling racing is set to take place on 30 and 31 July 2022. Plymouth is one of the initial eight locations confirmed on the line-up for SailGP Season 3, which also includes stops in Bermuda, Chicago, Saint-Tropez and Dubai.
As it once again brings sailing’s best roster of athletes together, SailGP is also set to welcome two new franchise teams for its third season. Canada and Switzerland are new additions, joining the existing teams from Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United States.
Great Britain SailGP Team CEO and Driver, Ben Ainslie, commented: “We are delighted that Plymouth has retained its place for Season 3, it has one of the world’s most visually stunning harbours and its natural amphitheatre creates the perfect SailGP race village for fans to immerse themselves in the racing.
“The city’s environmental commitments, and its status as Britain’s first National Marine Park, also seamlessly align with our team ethos to protect our pitch. We are looking forward to again supporting our Race For The Future partner, the local community and event organisers in numerous activities that will help will help amplify positive scientific knowledge and empower young people to take positive action to protect nature, people and our planet.
