The first Act of the 2012 Extreme Sailing Series™ is just under a week away – the Alinghi team is already training hard out in Oman, whilst the final details are being put in place to ensure that the 8-event global circuit is accessible to fans on and off site.
Whilst most of Europe has been gripped in an icy winter, the Extreme 40 sailors have been enjoying the warmth of the Omani climate training out of Mussanah. There is no doubting the caliber of the sailors involved but with plenty of new faces, it will take time for some teams to find their true form.
The circuit is now entering its sixth season and the ‘stadium racing’ concept that sits at the heart of the Extreme Sailing Series is beating stronger than ever.
