Rolex is Presenting Partner and Official Timepiece of SailGP, the annual championship that is redefining sailing.
Established in 2018 and headquartered in London and San Francisco, SailGP is an annual championship featuring bold, cutting-edge technology and extraordinary skill and athleticism. The fan-centric inshore competition takes place in some of the world’s most famous harbours and culminates with a winner-takes-all match race. National teams compete in identical, supercharged F50 foiling catamarans, engineered for intense racing at speeds exceeding 50 knots (nearly 60 mph/100 kmh).
SailGP represents a key milestone in the evolution of yachting and enables Rolex to further enhance its long-standing relationship with the sport, which dates back to 1958. As a brand, Rolex has always appreciated endeavours that combine the highest levels of technology with towering individual talent. SailGP meets such a vision.
Rolex timepieces and clocks will be visible throughout all SailGP events, and featured on each of the six supercharged F50 catamarans – the world’s fastest race boat.
Created to be the ultimate skipper’s watch, the Yacht-Master II features a mechanical memory countdown function. It continues to set new standards in the world of yacht racing, just like the ground-breaking SailGP championship.
