Sail GP Inspire Cowes 2019

Rooster®, stoked to partner with the SailGP Inspire program as Technical Clothing Sponsor

Inspire is SailGPs community, education and outreach initiative, powered by the belief that sailing can be a force for good.

The goal: to leave a positive legacy and build a sustainable sport by providing equal, life-changing opportunities and new career pathways for all, regardless of race or socioeconomic background.

Launched in Cowes in August 2019, and taking place at every subsequent SailGP event around the world, Inspire comprises three innovative modules. Racing, Learning and Careers for young people aged 9-23. In addition, local youth sailors will be offered the opportunity to participate in a pre-show the Rippers on each SailGP race day. The male and female participants (50-50 split) will be selected in coordination with local sailing associations in each territory to showcase their talents in front of SailGP crowds and on big screens in the Race Villages.
