SailGP unveils behind-the-scenes doc series with Denmark SailGP team

By 23rd July 2020 No Comments

The seven-part series will air monthly in the lead up to SailGP Season 2 next year.

SailGP has unveiled a mini doc series going behind-the-scenes as the Denmark SailGP team prepares for Season 2 of SailGP in 2021.

The series has been made in association with Team Rockwool Racing and offers ‘access-all-areas’ to the Denmark SailGP Team, which is led by Nicolai Sehested, the youngest helmsman in SailGP.

Episode one airs today and is available across both the team and SailGP channels, featuring never-before-seen footage as the Denmark SailGP Team prepares for its debut in SailGP in Sydney, February 2020.

The team had just 20 hours of training on board the F50 catamaran ahead of the event, which sees ‘flying boats’ capable of speeds in excess of 50 knots (nearly 60 mph) racing head-to-head.

The seven-part series will be told monthly throughout the year.

Sehested said: “The allure of SailGP is clear – a chance to compete against the best in the world, in the fastest boats – but with that comes pressure to perform, and unexpected challenges and this is something that we wanted to share with our fans. We look forward to bringing the SailGP fans along on our journey to the start line.”

SailGP CMO Tim Godfrey added: “At SailGP, we’re continually looking at ways to bring our fans closer to the action and give them unprecedented access to the league’s teams and athletes. This docu-series does just that and will provide a great insight into the Danish team, it’s build up to the restart of the season, as well as the highs and lows that go with competing at this level and at the cutting-edge of the sport.”
