Sailing action returns for the 5th consecutive year to Cardiff, one of the most favorite sailing spots of the Extreme Sailing Series. Eight of the top sailing teams in the world will unleash their skills and efforts in a sailing battle between the 23rd and 26th of June, 2016.
Extreme Sailing Series
Sailing at Extreme Sailing Series, St Petersburg Russia
The river’s natural two-knots current and the varying winds – with some really hard ones blowing from the west – make the event an extra interesting one. Skills, endurance and tactics will be key aspects to secure the win.
The fleet will be racing with the world renowned Palace Embankment, the Winter Palace and the Peter and Paul Fortress in the background, situated between the Troitskiy and Drovtsovyy bridges.
You can watch the exciting race from the Race Village – opening on September 1st – located on Zayachii island, at Peter and Paul Fortress, right in the heart of St Petersburg.
As always, action will be live on the Extreme Sailing Series™ website ‘LIVE’ page. Visit the ‘Live’ page for live video, as well as for live streaming of the SAP Sailing Analytics and dynamic leader boards. ‘Stadium Racing’ will be on live streaming and with expert commentary and analytics from the event’s technical partner SAP.
