After Halifax hosted a record-breaking event, the SailGP race will not return next season.

Organizers have announced the list of host locations for the 2024-2025 season. Canada is not among them.

Fifty thousand spectators watched the race in Halifax. Large crowds gathered on the quays of Halifax and Dartmouth, as well as on the water.

The United States tops the event list with the most destinations. Three races are scheduled for the 2024-2025 season. One each in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.

Online criticism was swift and critical.

An angry social media commentator said: “Stupid decision not to return to Halifax. Fast ticket sales, great crowds and perfect viewing location.”

Another commenter wrote: “Interesting that Canada wasn’t included,” while another replied: “A slap in the face to all Canadians.”

SailGP hopes to return to Canada in 2025-2026.
