Extreme Sailing Series Singapore

Some of the world’s best sailors are preparing to meet up for the first, opening act of the 2015 Extreme Sailing Series Singapore.  Act one is due to start on 5th February and will run through until 8th February, at the world famous Marina Bay, Singapore.  Race Director Phil Lawrence thinks it is a fantastic venue to open the series with: “……..right in the middle of the city that really does epitomize our stadium concept. Light and tricky winds are the norm, but it can get very gusty as we saw last year, especially if the frequent thunderstorms are nearby. It’s a tricky venue, which will test the teams both old and new. With such a talented and diverse fleet, I think the established form guide could be thrown out of the window.”

The Extreme Sailing Series Singapore will see 9 teams from 10 nations and 45 world-class sailors competing, here is a list of all the teams:

GAC Pindar (GBR)

Gazprom Team Russia (RUS)

Lino Sonego Team Italia (ITA)
