The Australia Sail Grand Prix returns to the iconic Sydney Harbour December 17-18, with live coverage on Foxtel and Kayo. In addition, the Australia SailGP will be available to watch live and free on Kayo Freebies.
In a major coup for fans, Kayo will provide exciting ways to experience the thrilling close-to-shore races with access to stream two different camera modes throughout the series. Helicopter Cam will provide an aerial perspective of the event, while Onboard Cam will get viewers closer to the raw action aboard the 50-foot catamarans.
The Australia Sail Grand Prix forms part of a global series featuring eight national teams competing for their country including Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United States of America.
The penultimate event in the series will see the Australian SailGP Team – led by home-grown Olympic gold medallist Tom Slingsby – defend their title as reigning champions – with only a point separating them from Team USA and Team Japan.
Patrick Delany, Foxtel Group Chief Executive Officer said: “As a key broadcast partner of the SailGP, we are proud to be bringing this event to Australians. Not only are we able to showcase the sport to the more than 2.4 million subscribers watching Foxtel and Kayo, but all Aussie sailing fans, live and free, via Kayo Freebies.”
Kayo Sports CEO Julian Ogrin said: “Kayo is the go-to destination for streaming over 50 sports live and on demand. And with new ways to watch and experience all the Australia SailGP action through our new innovative camera angles, fans will be able to get closer to the sport than ever before.”
For fans looking to catch up on the action, the event will be available to watch on Kayo Minis.
