The Champagne showers from Team Australia’s Season 2 championship have barely dried and SailGP is already starting another dash for $1 million in cash.

Slingsby is an Olympic gold medalist and former America’s Cup champion. He has skippered the Flying Roo foiling catamaran to the first two championships, each coming with a $1 million winner-take-all prize.
