From 8-11 December,  the international Sailing Regatta ' 10th. edition of ' Extreme Sailing Series™' will culminate in the final showdown on the waters of the iconic Sydney Harbour in Australia  - with  seven international teams  including Australian 'wildcard entry', Team Australia.

Going into the final Act of a thrilling 2016 campaign the state of play at the top of the leaderboard sees current leaders Oman Air just two points ahead of swiss Alinghi Team, setting the scene for a nail-biting winner takes all double-points final.


Alinghi skipper Arnaud Psarofaghis, whose team has already secured four Act victories to Oman Air’s three, is unfazed by the task ahead. “We welcome the pressure,  It will help us to try to raise our game even higher and gives us something to aim for.”
“We are confident, but we take nothing for granted; firstly, because our opponents are tough, talented competitors; secondly because, as all sailors know, anything can happen. But we believe in ourselves and will be giving it everything we have,”

Also the strong performing Red Bull Sailing Team, who have demonstrated great consistency throughout the year, being the only team to finish on the podium at every Act so far, currently sit just six points behind Oman Air -    are in contention for overall victory.

“2016 has been a successful year for us from a sporting perspective. Looking back to Act 1, Muscat, we have improved a lot in boat handling and team work,” “But the task is not finished yet, our goal is to win the event in Sydney.”   Roman Hagara, skipper of Red Bull Sailing Team.


Phil Lawrence, Race Director of the Extreme Sailing Series™,
