SailGP today launched Winning Calls with Oracle, a new seven-part series of virtual race-viewing events featuring the global league's world-class athletes providing unique insight into how the national teams make strategic decisions at the highest speeds ever recorded in the sport.

SailGP's Winning Calls with Oracle will launch on May 28 at 3 p.m. BST with the world's most decorated Olympic sailor and Great Britain SailGP Team helm - Sir Ben Ainslie - along with data analyst Emily Nagel, Great Britain SailGP Team CEO Chris Draper and SailGP Director of Technology Warren Jones. The premiere event will explore how the Great Britain SailGP Team presented by INEOS convincingly won Sydney SailGP 2020.

The series will comprise of monthly episodes from May through November, and will feature athletes, coaches and data analysts rewatching SailGP's best action to-date. SailGP presenter Ed Leigh, known for his coverage of action and adventure sports including the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, will serve as the main series host, drawing insights out of the athletes and analysts, and conducting fan Q&As.

SailGP CMO Tim Godfrey said: "During these unprecedented times, we are looking for ways to bring our athletes and fans closer together, while offering fresh and innovative content. With the help of our global partner Oracle, we are able to provide never-before-shared insight into the data-driven, split-second decisions that are made during the world's fastest sail racing."

SailGP is unique in the sporting world as all of the data is delivered in real-time from the Oracle Cloud and is open-source. After each on-water session, the teams pour through terabytes of data - both their own and that of their competitors - to see how to continually improve and gain a competitive edge while racing in boats that all feature the same design and technology.
