Oman Air signs deal with Extreme Sailing Series Persistent heavy fog forced the cancellation of racing on day one at the Land Rover Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 3, Qingdao. It is only fourth time in the nine-year history of the Series that mother nature has forced the organisers to cancel racing, but the first time it has happened due to fog.
Land Rover sponsors Extreme Sailing Series The Extreme Sailing Series was launched in 2007 and investment group Ishares were signed up as sponsors shortly after, taking up an offer of naming rights but since the deal ended in 2010 following a restructuring of the company, the series has grown without a title sponsor.
Edox Watches sponsors Extreme Sailing Series Winning on the Extreme Sailing Series™ racecourse is never easy, and finding the right formula for consistency in changeable conditions is a challenge for even the most experienced teams. Over four days 11-14 March, Muscat hosted Act 2 of the Extreme Sailing Series, and threw all it could at the eight Extreme 40s, with conditions dropping from a blustery 16 knots to a shifty 8 knots. Add a big sea state to the mix, and the teams were having to reset not only their rigs and boat settings but also their mindsets daily.
