The Extreme Sailing Series is consistently one of the top professional sailing events in the world. Over the past couple of years, OC Events (now part of OC Thirdpole), has built the series for Extreme 40 catamarans into a sports entertainment product that delivers results for sponsors, sailors and spectators.
If imitation is the best form of flattery, then BMW ORACLE’s decision to host the next America’s Cup in scaled up catamarans must be in part to do with the success of the Extreme Sailing Series.
On the eve of the 2010 World Yacht Racing Forum in Estoril, the Extreme Sailing Series will announce it’s plans for the coming year including the 2011 calendar. Expect new venues (not just in Europe) and some big names looking to develop skills in sailing fast and exciting multihulls.
For those not in Estoril, the press conference will be streamed live. You can watch the event on our dedicated Extreme Sailing Series News page.
