Sail GP is a prestigious World Class Grand Prix sailing competition, so I was over the moon to be commissioned to create their official poster for the third event in the Global Championship calendar for Plymouth.
The opening event was in Bermuda in May, followed by Chicago in June and it is fabulous that this one is taking place in Plymouth on 30-31st July.
This will be an incredible event to watch and it is amazing that this world class event is happening in the South West, which I feel very proud to be about and honoured to be asked to create the official poster for.
I wanted the artwork to show the magnificence of these high class boats which are high performance F50 foiling Catamarans , travelling up and out of the water at insane speeds of over 53 knots or 61 m.p.h. Sail GP is the worlds most competitive racing on water and is the formula one of the Seas. I wanted the poster to portray the majestic speed and grandeur of the event and boats and I am delighted and love my final artwork. Showing the iconic Smeatons Tower Lighthouse which centres the artwork and is the centrepiece of Plymouth Hoe, making it one of the South Wests most iconic landmarks.
This picture is the launch of my new range of event and sporting posters alongside the National and European Cadet Championships which is also being held in Torbay and both are available to purchase.
