Welcome to the World of Stadium sailboat racing!
An award winning client engagement opportunity.
The organisers are delighted to offer hospitality packages at the Extreme Sailing Series throughout the entire series.
The most competitive, entertaining and exciting inshore sailing product the sport has ever seen, providing a truly unique VIP experience.
Spectacular racing in almost all wind conditions due to the high power-to- weight ratio of the Extreme 40 catamarans. These boats are visually stunning and 100% performance-focused multihulls. ‘Flying’ a hull in as little as 8 knots of wind, these boats can exceed speeds of 35kts/65 km/h.
Each event consists of 4 days of racing, usually Thursday to Sunday, with the first day exclusively for open water racing and the final three days for stadium racing and open to VIP guests and the public. There are generally up to 8 races run each day, each lasting no more than 20 minutes with the objective to entertain both sailing fans and non- sailors alike.
Much more than your usual day of corporate hospitality, the Extreme Sailing Series offers an award winning guest experience, with 93% of guests surveyed saying it was one of the top 3 events that they had ever attended.
A multi-level hospitality experience is available which can be tailored easily to suit corporate hospitality, networking, team building and staff reward days at each Extreme Sailing Series event. Your guests can either sail onboard with the teams during the racing – a true “money can’t buy” interactive experience - or simply enjoy the comforts of the VIP Extreme Club Lounge where they can directly watch the action from the sun terrace! Please note all sailing is subject to weather conditions.
These boats are sailed by a crew of five, with the unique addition of the ‘Guest Sailor’ spot. The ability to put a guest on one of these boats is something that amazes even the most pampered corporate guest. Being onboard a carbon racing machine, flying a hull and sitting next to some of the World’s greatest sailors as they battle it out to win is not something you forget easily, even if you are not a sailor. Please note no previous experience is required; our experienced crew will show you the ropes!
The EXTREME Club Lounge is the centre piece of the Extreme Sailing Series Race Village where Sailing teams and guests congregate throughout the event. The Lounge and balcony overlook the racecourse giving the best vantage point for guests to enjoy the stadium sailing just metres away. The Extreme Sailing Series private chef ensures everyone is well fed with locally sourced delicious produce and the VIP Bar ensures you don’t go thirsty!
There is plenty going on during the day to keep guests entertained including: concerts and live music; windsurfing and wakeboarding demos; skydiving shows and 49er racing; street dancing; cultural shows and much more!
The guests will start their day welcomed to the Extreme Club with a light breakfast served. This is followed by the guest welcome and safety brief by the Extreme Sailing Series Events Team. There is an option for a morning guest sailing programme on the Extreme 40s. Lunch is then served in Extreme Club and the Extreme Sailing Series Racing begins in the afternoon. A Prize Giving follows the end of racing.
The organisers can also add on rib rides, drinks receptions, exclusive dinners etc. Nothing is too much trouble, we aim to enhance the guest experience and make it a truly exceptional day!
