SailGP has announced a three-season partnership with the world's leading supplier of composite yacht rigging, Future Fibres, to exclusively supply rigging on the F50 - the high performance catamaran engineered for intense, high-speed racing in the global SailGP championship.

Future Fibres will provide its unique multistrand technology, ECsix, with its track record for high performance and reliability, to all eight F50s racing in the annual, global SailGP league. The three-season deal will also allow SailGP to explore Future Fibres latest hybrid products, such as AEROsix, to further increase the performance of the F50 catamarans. As well as providing Future Fibres with a unique test platform to further develop its products.

Since its inception, Future Fibres has supplied its rigging to numerous grand prix race yachts and high-performance superyachts, with innovation and high-performance driving its continued growth. With SailGP sharing these same values, this is a platform for a strong alliance.

James Austin, Future Fibres General Manager, said: "We are excited to be teaming up with SailGP, the pre-eminent high performance sailing league on the planet. The selection of Future Fibres by SailGP further endorses Future Fibres' position as the go to supplier of performance rigging for high performance one design race applications."

Brad Marsh, SailGP tech team operations manager, said: "When choosing a supplier to align with the technologically advanced F50 catamarans, SailGP looks for companies with experience to provide products that are proven to be reliable and fit for purpose. With Future Fibres we are looking forward to developing our existing relationship and work in parallel to develop their product lines across the F50 platform and with our new modular wings."

SailGP Season 2 starts in Bermuda on April 24-25, 2021 and features eight national teams made up of the sport's best athletes squaring off in eight events across three continents.
