SailGP is reported to be pulling out of the March 2024 scheduled Auckland event.
The Season 4 ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix was set for 23-24 March 2024 on Auckland’s Waitematā Harbour with Wynyard Point as the spectator area.
The unavailability of Wynyard Point, which contains contaminated sites going through a remediation process, as a spectator facility has apparently triggered the search for a new venue.
SailGP is exploring other options, including a return to Christchurch, where the 2023 event was held.
The next SailGP event is the Emirates Dubai Sail Grand Prix on 9 and 10 December 2023.
