Europe’s Largest Waterfront Development point, Cardiff Bay is the best host for the spectacular event. The UK leg of the Extreme Sailing Series has become one of the favorites and has earned its place among the summer sports fans of Cardiff and surrounding areas.

Just to mention, in 2013, 120,000 people gathered in Cardiff to watch the series and since then, the crowd gathered in Cardiff every year is of the biggest crowds gathered in the duration of the entire Series.
