Extreme Sailing Series - Global



Act 6 - Istanbul, Turkey

11th-14th September

Act 6 - Istanbul, Turkey

This magical meeting place of East meets West will host Act 6 in the magnificent and cultural city of Istanbul, Turkey.

A firm favourite on the calendar amongst the elite level Extreme 40 sailors delivering consistent steady winds that in previous years have ensured some truly spectacular racing.

Dating back to the seventh millennium BC, Istanbul has a wealth of historical sites to explore, and an extraordinary cultural experience lies around every corner.

The city has a long history in sea trading as the final stage on the legendary Silk Routes that linked Asia and Europe, and was previously the capital of the Byzantine Empire. The city’s Bazaars are a treat for visitors, from the touristy Sultanahmet district to the more local ones, which can be found down hidden alleyways throughout the city. Visitors are left in awe by the stunning Imperial Ottoman architecture and the magnificently decorated imperial mosques that together form one of the world's great skylines.

Race Village & Activities
The free to enter public Race Village is located at Yenikapı Etkinlik Alanı where the Extreme 40 fleet will race close to the shore on the public days, providing the perfect viewing platform for “Stadium Racing” for the Extreme Sailing Series. The public Race Village will provide a host of entertainment throughout the day including live commentary in Turkish and English, a resident DJ, kite demos by Best Kiteboards, food stalls as well as a zone dedicated to children. Public will also have the chance to take a seat in one of the Land Rover vehicles and enjoy the specialist team demonstrating the all-terrain capabilities across the Land Rover range at the Experience Zone.
