Sure. And yet, it sounds like it's within the funding plan, whatever that might be. otherwise they'd replace under-sponsored teams instead of adding a whole team. Compare/contrast Japan replaced by (who was that? Denmark, Canada?), vs the addition of Germany.except it's still operating at a significant loss
The funding plan = Bank of Larry. Sustainable like any billionaire's plaything. Like today's Twitter but with fewer fans.
It's supposed to have a 5 year ramp down, and while i don't think they are publishing their financials, what's externally visible is positive.The funding plan = Bank of Larry. Sustainable like any billionaire's plaything. Like today's Twitter but with fewer fans.
What did all those professional athletes do after AC36, 35, 34, 33, 32....
Any entity is sustainable right up until they put locks on the front gate and invalidate staff pass cards...The "will SailGP be find its footing / be sustainable" ship has sailed.
Sponsors like the time-on-the-screen / dollars ratio, which beats AC and also beats the long distance races (VOR etc) which are so long that they get summarized into 1 minute snippets in which your expensively sponsored boat might not get a mention. SGP events are made-for-tv-and-youtube, suboptimal for actual sailing but work great for the eyeballs-are-watching-your-logo metrics.

Looks pretty good I must say.
Because Ben has secured Emirates as a Title-Team Partner. Neither Rockwool or Oracle did that. It shows you how talented Ben Ainslie is securing Sponsorship Deals.WTF is up with GBR being the only sponsored named team? How far is Emirates $ up Ben's ass???
Why not Oracle United States SailGP Team or Rockwool Denmark SailGP Team?
I did the tech start up sales thing in Silicon Valley. I know a few ex - Oracle sales folks from the early, early days. Every quarter the bottom 10% of sales were shown the door, regardless of previous performance.Isn't it Rockwool? Thought so. But Oracle is either unknown or hated, lol. It has some business practices customers dislike intensely but they are stuck. Also they overpromise.
Edit: it's "Denmark SailGP Team Presented by Rockwool" on their social media. Logo has Rockwool on it
Bad for who and when did the 52 Series need to be profitable to afford worldwide coverage?The TP52 Super Series are bad! They not create any revenue at all. The TV Production is bad.
There will be a 5th and 6th Season.
So, eventually all the teams will be sponsor named and replace national teams?Because Ben has secured Emirates as a Title-Team Partner. Neither Rockwool or Oracle did that. It shows you how talented Ben Ainslie is securing Sponsorship Deals.
