Who doesn’t enjoy a V.I.P experience? I had a wonderful time as a VIP guest at the Extreme Sailing series in Cardiff in August 2018 and would totally recommend this high octane, action packed sailing experience. This is a once in a lifetime experience for keen sailors and total novices alike.
Established in 2007, the Extreme Sailing Series™ is the original Stadium Racing sailing circuit designed for spectators, delivering high-performance action close to shore and putting guests at the heart of the battle. Attracting some of the world’s top sailors, racing the hydro-foiling GC32 catamarans on short courses, the global circuit spans the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas. The Extreme Sailing Series also delivers a unique and bespoke VIP experience, giving guests the opportunity to race on board the high-speed boats in the Guest Sailor spot.

The next Extreme Sailing series will be held in San Diego, USA:
18 October – 21 October 2018
With the racing taking place just five metres from the shore of Harbor Island, the man-made peninsula located close to Downtown San Diego, the Series will return to the city for the penultimate Act of the season. Enjoying a very temperate climate, the Californian city of San Diego sees consistent breezes, making it a popular sailing spot for California and the rest of the west coast.
What time zone do I need to set my watch to? UTC-7
What will the weather be like? Expect glorious sunshine with little chance of rain.
