During 2019, SailGP was fought out in five different locations: Sydney, San Francisco, New York, Cowes in Great Britain and Marseille. The competition was viewed by 133 000 spectators first-hand and by several million TV viewers.
The boats were transported by air between the different legs and assembled on site. TPO provided WIFI, printers etcetera to the tech area, the media area, the VIP area and to the TV compound, the area where the TV broadcasts were being produced. In some cities, these areas were spread out geographically, something that presented a challenge since our goal was to build several networks that was joined in a way that made the user experience them as one. We also created a wireless system for IP TV which transmitted video to spectator boats where the race was shown on screens. Two specialists from TPO were present for the entirety of the tour. In addition, one co-worker provided support remotely from Sweden. In 2020 we will continue to be an IT partner for SailGP.
