For the sixth consecutive year, the Extreme Sailing Series will return to Cardiff Bay, Europe’s largest waterfront development, over the Bank Holiday weekend. The enclosed bay provides the ideal Stadium Racing venue for spectators to get up-close and personal with the racing from all sides.
Where is the best place to watch?
The public Race Village is located by the Norwegian Church and provides the perfect viewing spot, along with a whole host of shoreside entertainment. The city is also full of surprises for visitors, with must-see sites such as the slate and steel structure of The Millennium Centre, situated within the Bay, as well as the world-renowned art collection in the National Museum. Cardiff is Wales’ largest city and also its capital, making it the chief commercial centre, and the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales.

For spectators travelling to the event via train, the railway network between Newport and Cardiff is being upgraded over the August Bank Holiday weekend and a replacement bus service will be in operation.
