The day before SailGP’s official race debut on San Francisco Bay the pace was quickly set by the Japan SailGP Team, who dominated the practice day, leading the three races and winning the match race against the British team.
The Japanese nearly broke the elusive 50-knot barrier just before the finish of the final race. A top speed of 49.1 knots surpassed all speeds set by the revolutionary F50s since the season began.
The first USA SailGP event kicks off Staurday with the high-adrenaline competition taking place just a few meters from the grandstand.
