Inspire Racing x WASZP

WASZP is proud to be a partner SailGP and their quest to form a pathway for young sailors into the professional ranks. The SailGP INSPIRE program in conjunction with WASZP is used as a genuine talent identification pathway for young sailors Under 21 to gain exposure on the world stage.

We have had an amazing start to the SailGP WASZP INSPIRE Racing circuit for 2021, our third event in Plymouth was the first opportunity to run a full scale event. There was a mixture of written applications and 4 sailors were selected from the qualifying round at the UK WASZP Nationals. With 16 sailors (8x Male, 8x Female), ripping around the course in Plymouth, it was an event that will live in the memory of these young sailors for a long, long time!

Imagine flying at high speeds above the water just like the SailGP athletes – that’s what Inspire Racing offers, thanks to foiling technology. It’s cool, fast and thrilling – an entirely different, next-level experience. Closer to surfing or gliding in terms of image and lifestyle – but with technical skill and sheer enjoyment at its core.

16 youth athletes (U21) are selected on the following criteria: sailing ability; willingness to learn new skills; positive attitude towards the sport and this opportunity; ambitious; demonstrating the potential to become a SailGP athlete in the future.
