A day in the life of: An Extreme Sailing Series™ VIP

At the heart of every Extreme Sailing Series™ Race Village you’ll find the VIP Extreme Club, where both guests and sailors gather to enjoy the event in style. With unrivalled views of the racing, five-star all day catering, an open bar, exclusive entertainment and behind-the-scenes access, it promises to deliver an unforgettable experience.

So what happens when you’re an Extreme Sailing Series VIP?

Rock up at the Extreme Club in time for brunch at 10am. Browse the breakfast buffet at your leisure and soak up the atmosphere ahead of racing.

Next, head to reception and sign up for the day’s activities. First stop – a GC32 boat tour. Hang out with the sailors on the dock for a behind-the-scenes look at the high-performance GC32 catamaran and learn how it flies.

Keen to get up to speed on the story so far? Look no further than the Umpires and Skippers briefings. Listen to the umpires and world-class sailors as they reflect on the day before, and talk tactics for the race ahead.

Being a VIP is hungry work! A buffet lunch is offered in the Extreme Club each day, providing guests with a delicious and varied selection of hot and cold foods – don’t forget to grab a drink from the open bar.

Prepare to watch the racing unfold and secure your spot on the terrace as the international fleet goes head-to-head in the battle for the podium top spot.

RIB rides are up next. Take a spin in a chase boat right at the heart of the action on the stadium racecourse. Want to amp up your on-the-water experience? Snap up a Guest Sailor pass for the opportunity to jump on board a GC32 in full race mode. It’s sure to get your heart pounding and adrenaline pumping.

Time to refuel. A selection of light snacks is offered buffet-style in the afternoon followed by an always well-received drinks reception. Toast the sailors as they head in following a gruelling day on the water.

Mingle with these sailing superstars as they talk through the day’s drama in their post-sailing interviews.

Phew, what a day! Time to head home and catch up on the day’s highlights on the Extreme Sailing Series Facebook and YouTube.
