SailGP teams up with GoPro to bring fans closer to the action in Season 2
GoPro has been named as the official on-board action camera provider of SailGP for Season 2, which kicked off in Bermuda last month.
Using the latest in its lineup of waterproof cameras, GoPro is outfitting SailGP teams with its HERO9 and MAX cameras, which feature 5K image and crisp sound quality, the ability to record the nation vs nation on-water battles with immersive 360° views, and HyperSmooth technology for enhanced stabilisation in video recording. In addition, GoPro will supply a variety of mounting accessories to ensure the cameras are positioned in the best place and stay put as the boats travel at nearly 100kph.
SailGP head of digital and fan engagement Daisy Vollans said: “GoPro’s passion for adventure-seeking and conveying those moments through digital storytelling is the perfect complement to SailGP’s adrenaline-fueled championship, that’s powered by nature and delivered against a backdrop of natural, iconic venues around the world. This partnership not only delivers the ultimate in entertainment value for fans far and wide – bringing them closer to the action – it also represents inspiration, creativity and a genuine penchant for living life in the moment, so we are very excited to work with such a like-minded company as GoPro.”
To launch the collaboration SailGP and GoPro are encouraging fans to share where their next adventure will take them. The top two winning entries will receive a SailGP x GoPro prize bundle plus an exclusive SailGP Season 3 experience.
