Stella Bilger of New Zealand and Gavin Ball of Hawaii (USA) have claimed season 3 of the SailGP INSPIRE Racing series at the Grand Final in San Francisco.

An incredible week of INSPIRE racing has ended in San Francisco, providing a week the 17 competitors will never forget. With the top male and female sailor selected from each SailGP event during the season, the competition is at an all time high.

This program is genuinely like nothing else in the world, from sailing in front of huge crowds, to the incredible access to resources and facilities at SailGP and then of course the access to the F50 sailors themselves, all the WASZP sailors were congratulated by their teams and the drivers from the F50s are extremely generous with their time to help the next generation of stars com though the sport. Stella Bilger now takes her next opportunity in the sport by integrating further into the NZ SailGP team and Gavin Ball will spend time with the USA SailGP team, with both sailors getting time on the F50 in season 4.

Season 4 of the SailGP INSPIRE Racing program is looking epic! If you are an U21 sailor, you must be part of this circuit. Hit the link below to apply for an event in season 4.
