The picturesque city of St Petersburg is getting ready to welcome the 5th Act of the 2016 Extreme Sailing Series. Right in the middle of the majestic city lies the Neva River. A narrow stadium racetrack of about 800 x 300 meters will accommodate the race.
Extreme Sailing Series
Sailing at Extreme Sailing Series Sydney Australia
This season’s champions will be crowned on December 11, 2016, with an equally spectacular event as last year, the kind of only Sydney knows how to host.
The idyllic scenery close to Opera House will be the background of the racing held inside Sydney’s busy harbour. Though December’s weather conditions are usually perfect for sailing, the sailors will not only have to deal with that but also with the choppy water from all the passing ferries.
The winner will take it all in this last 8th Act of the 2016 Series, with 3 crews fighting for top spot after the results of the 7th act in Lisbon.
When the races are done, Sidney takes over though. Its history and culture, its art and cuisine, its everything… Sydney has something for everyone.
