Act 3 of the Extreme Sailing Series 2014 recently concluded in China. This global tour that kicked off in late February in Singapore has seen its ups and downs. Like many sailors who have been unable to attend any acts, I’ve been following the series profusely.
In Act 1, Team Aberdeen Singapore just may have experienced one of the most dramatic moments in the eight years the series has been being held. With winds varying from five to 23 knots across the racecourse, the team fought to get to the finish line.
In Act 2 over in Muscat, 11 top teams battled it out. Racing conditions were rough and temperatures were hot. Team The Wave took 1st place.
More recently in Act 3, Team Alinghi won, despite having one of the biggest crashes in the series’ history. The winds were rough. At the end of day three, only 13 points separated the top four teams.
Act 4 will kick off on June 26 in Russia – what are your predictions? Head over to our Twitter page and send us a Tweet with your predictions.
Until next time,
