2019 marks the fifth year of partnership between ICARUS Sports and the GC32 Racing Tour.

Appointed as media partner, ICARUS Sports will produce daily highlights clips, short features for social media and deliver raw footage to TV news. Our worldwide distribution package extending to over 160 nations, includes distribution to international sailing media and TV broadcasters, as well as five episodes of the 26 minute GC32 Racing Tour TV Show, showcasing one episode per event.

Featuring high speed one-design foiling catamarans, the 2019 GC32 Racing Tour spans four events hosted at specially selected southern Europe venues, renowned for their exceptional weather conditions, guaranteeing maximum speed and optimum foiling for the owner-driver and pro teams.

With the Extreme Sailing Series teams now consolidated into racing the GC32 Racing Tour, the line-up of high profile names and sky high pedigrees has escalated, with the leader board assaults set to come even more fast and furious, as teams seek individual event success and overall racing tour honours.

“ICARUS Sports is delighted to extend our partnership for another year,” commented Manos Kampas, ICARUS Sports Sales and Project Manager, “and we are proud to have been instrumental in the growth and global profile of the GC32 Racing Tour. The competition is set to be amazing and we are very excited to film all the new teams in action. This will be a battle to the end.”
