During the SailGP Press Conference, Japan Driver Nathan Outteridge has issued an urgent plea for financial backing and said the team may not be able to enter Season 3 if it does not receive support.

It comes after the news that Japan would sit out the first three events of the season to allow fully-funded newcomer teams Canada and Switzerland to enter the league. There are currently nine boats available while the tenth remains under construction.

The enforcement of harsher penalties in Season 3 means a ‘big rethink’ of the racing tactics employed by SailGP’s teams, Sir Ben Ainslie has said.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the Bermuda Sail Grand Prix presented by Hamilton Princess, Ainslie said the doubling of penalties dished out in Season 3 is forcing the British team to ‘reevaluate our risk and reward approach to racing’.
