SailGP Expands U.S. Partnership with Sonesta International Hotels 

The hotel group will provide premium stays and unforgettable experiences for the U.S. SailGP Team and SailGP fans at U.S. events  

NEW YORK – March 5, 2024 – SailGP, the world’s most exciting race on water, has announced its expanded partnership with Sonesta International Hotels, one of the fastest-growing hospitality companies in the U.S., to become the official hotel partner of the United States SailGP Team and upcoming Season 4 U.S. SailGP events this year. This collaboration brings together two organizations who have seen incredible growth in recent years in their respective industries. 

Sonesta International Hotels will provide premium stays and unique experiences for the U.S. SailGP Team, SailGP fans, and Sonesta Travel Pass members at the Mubadala New York Sail Grand Prix on June 22-23 and the SailGP Season 4 Grand Final in San Francisco on July 13-14. Last year, the hotel group kicked off the partnership with the U.S. SailGP Team and the league at the Mubadala SailGP Season 3 Grand Final in San Francisco and the Rolex United States Sail Grand Prix in Chicago at Navy Pier. 

“We are thrilled to open our doors to the incredible athletes competing in this summer’s SailGP events and to welcome SailGP fans to our New York and San Francisco properties,” says Sonesta’s Chief Brand Officer, Elizabeth Harlow. “At Sonesta, we’re dedicated to enriching the experiences of our Sonesta Travel Pass members with fresh and thrilling opportunities. This partnership further cements our unwavering commitment to offer our members an unparalleled access to experience SailGP events.”

Mike Buckley, co-owner and CEO of the U.S. SailGP Team, said: “We plan on putting together one of the most exciting sports experiences in New York this June with spectators traveling from all over the world. By partnering with one of the most reputable hotel companies, the team and I look forward to making Sonesta Hotels our ‘home away from home’ as we look to close out Season 4 with a strong finish in the U.S.”

The Mubadala New York Sail Grand Prix will be the first time the U.S. SailGP Team competes on home waters under new ownership.
