SailGP and ePropulsion, a global leader and market challenger in marine electric propulsion systems and services, announced today a partnership to deliver innovation on-water that provides electric outboard solutions for the global sail racing league that champions a world powered by nature.

ePropulsion has been appointed as an official partner to SailGP and, with a shared sustainability and environmental purpose and vision, will join SailGP's Race for the Future and help deliver actions and innovations that advance the global adoption of clean energy.

ePropulsion will be the Electric Outboard Supplier for Small Craft for Season 2 and Season 3. Season 2, which spans 2021-22 commenced on Friday 23rd April with the Bermuda Sail Grand Prix presented by Hamilton Princess and comprised of eight national teams racing identical F50 wingsailed catamarans. The sport's top athletes will go head-to-head over eight events in Bermuda, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, France, Spain, New Zealand and United States.

SailGP is the first climate positive sports and entertainment property with the goal of accelerating the transition to clean energy. Championing a world powered by nature, SailGP has set the ambitious target of ensuring its events are 100% powered by clean energy - both on and off the water - by 2025. SailGP is working in partnership with ePropulsion to transition 11 boats to ePropulsion electric outboard motors for Season 2. By switching to electric, the outboards provide an environmentally friendly solution that creates less pollution and no emissions, making them better for planet. In addition, SailGP and ePropulsion will actively inspire boaters to use a more sustainable and environmentally friendly form of marine propulsion that helps to protect our fragile marine environment.

Danny Tao, CEO of ePropulsion, said, "We are thrilled to be partnering with SailGP as we share many common values and goals. A strong sustainable and environmentally focused vision is important for this partnership, and we will work together to help ensure we leave behind a positive legacy. We are looking forward to collaborating over the next two seasons as an official partner and supplier. These are very exciting times ahead for all involved."

Fiona Morgan, SailGP Director of Purpose and Impact said, "We are excited to work with like-minded partners that share our vision of accelerating the transition to clean energy. Our partnership with ePropulsion is the first of many steps to meet our ambitious target of being fully powered by nature on-water by 2025 and is a great example of how, through technology and innovation, we can help create a better planet."
