Cádiz already feels the adrenaline and speed of SailGP, the fastest flying catamaran competition in the world. Sailing fans are turning their sights on this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix and the Spanish team F50 Victoria will seek to make history. Cádiz hosts the sixth round of the circuit and Spain will try to achieve that triumph that to date has resisted. She managed to be second in Taranto (Italy) and third in Saint Tropez (France) and now the desire is to reach first place on the podium. In addition, you compete at home and with a team that allows you to be optimistic. “In Cádiz they have welcomed us with open arms. We feel a great responsibility,” commented Florian Trittel.

The official competition begins with a day in which three races will be lived starting at 16:30. Each one will have a maximum duration of 15 minutes, with an interval between one and another of another 15 ‘. The demand is maximum and the Spanish team has a crew full of enthusiasm and quality made up of the medalists in Tokyo Jordi Xammar and Joan Cardona and the olympians too Florian Trittel, Diego Botín and Joel Rodríguez; complete the team Phil Robertson, Andrea Emone and Mateu Barber. The intention of the Spanish bloc is to sign a great Saturday to reach Sunday with options to gain a place in the Grand Final. Only the three best teams have access to it. On Sunday, the day will be made up of two races and the three teams with the highest score in the global calculation of the five tests will go to the final, which will be played next.
