Extreme Sailing Series – San Diego

Extreme Sailing logo

The Extreme Sailing Series™ is a global, professional yacht racing Series that brings together some of the world’s very best sailors, on some of the world’s most technically advanced foiling catamarans, racing in a ‘Stadium’ format. With up to eight races each afternoon, within feet of the shoreline, the free-to-public event showcases sport at the very highest levels, against the backdrop of some of the world’s most iconic cities including Sydney, Saint Petersburg, Istanbul and Venice.

Extreme Sailing SerieseSince its inception, the Extreme Sailing Series™ has attracted some of the world’s best sailors from a range of disciplines, including the Olympics, America’s Cup and round the world ocean racing. In 2016, the Extreme Sailing Series™ celebrated its tenth season with the introduction of a fleet of foiling GC32 catamarans, with the teams ‘flying’ in front of thousands of spectators in premier destinations around the world. The super-light GC32 foiling catamarans can reach speeds of almost 40 knots (46mph), and like the bigger yachts used in the America’s Cup, appear to fly over the water as they lift off the surface and accelerate.

The Extreme Sailing Series™ is one of only six events to be granted World Sailing (the global governing body of sailing) Special Event Status alongside the America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, World Match Racing Tour, PWA World Tour and Pro Kite Tour – events that represent the pinnacle of the sport of sailing. The Series attracts global media attention across print, broadcast and online media.
