    A four-year commitment to New Zealand with Christchurch and Auckland to alternate as Sail GP host cities highlights an expansion announcement for season three of the event


    The Christchurch leg, which was canned this summer due to Covid restrictions, will take place in January 2023.

    New Zealand event director Karl Budge says the move makes sense.



    New Zealand team joint-boss Blair Tuke welcomes the new tack.



    New races have also been added in Chicago and Dubai next year.
