Now in its tenth season in 2016, the award-winning and adrenaline-fuelled global Series has given the sport of sailing a healthy dusting-off. Bringing the action to the public with Stadium Racing, putting guests at the heart of the battle, and dramatically increasing the pace on the water, the creators of the Extreme Sailing Series™ have set new standards, both in terms of high level competition and sporting entertainment. With a new fleet of hydro-foiling GC32s replacing the Extreme 40 for the 2016 season the Series is proving to be another fast-paced and thrilling year.
From the drawing board to the water, since 2007 the Extreme Sailing Series™ has transformed the world of professional inshore sailing.
2016 saw the Extreme 40 replaced by the GC32 as the new weapon of choice, with even higher top speeds than its predecessor.
Bringing close combat racing to city centre Stadiums around the world, the Series brings world-class competition to the public, setting pulses racing.
