About Us


SailingPerformance was born shortly after the 32nd America’s Cup. Our vision is to provide the best data analysis services for racing yachts.

Over the years we have been continuously developing our proprietary tools and methods for data analysis applied to the field of high performance yacht racing. The race results of the teams we work with is a tribute to the quality of our services.
