Poll: Will you check out the multi-million dollar global sailing event coming to Lyttelton, Christchurch?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Christchurch has beaten other New Zealand cities to host a major international sailing event showcasing the region to a global broadcast audience.

The New Zealand grand prix event will be held on Lyttelton Harbour next January as part of SailGP’s second season. The SailGP league involves teams racing identical hydrofoiling catamarans at speeds of up to 50 knots (100kmh).

Olympic and world champions Peter Burling and Blair Tuke will head New Zealand’s first entry in the event. Also competing will be Sir Ben Ainslie, skippering the British boat, and Australian Jimmy Spithill piloting for the United States.
