Marine consultancy and survey company ABPmer is the official supplier of ocean intelligence to SailGP, a global sail racing championship, featuring eight teams going head-to-head on high performance F50 foiling catamarans in short, intense races through nine international events
Season 2 of the Championship is well underway; starting in April, the world class athletes competed in Bermuda, before heading to Europe for back-to-back events in Taranto-Italy, Plymouth-UK and Aarhus-Denmark.
ABPmer is providing race-day current data at 10-minute intervals for Season 2 race events through to March 2022, including Saint-Tropez, Cadiz-Andalusia (Spain), and San Francisco, where tides are the primary driver of surface currents.
Damon O’Brien, ABPmer’s Managing Director, said, “We are delighted to be supporting SailGP with tidal intelligence during the 2021/2022 Championship season. Both SailGP race management and the world-class athletes benefit from our modelling specialists’ high-resolution hydrodynamic (water motion) numerical model outputs, delivering accurate representations of current speed and direction across the race areas.“
