Final Practice Before The Final Act : Extreme Sailing Series

December 9th, 2014
Sydney, Australia,

Practice finished just in time today as the rain slowly built up to where, as I write this, it is now raining quite hard and I am listening to it bounce off the roof of my hotel room. It was a perfect day for sailing on Sydney Harbour, the day before official racing begins for the final Act of the Extreme Sailing Series.

Nice FRA to Amsterdam NED

It all came down to the last race. We won the race and the event, Act 7 of the Extreme Sailing Series!! It was an incredibly tricky regatta, one of the more lower points-scored events in a while but we are more than happy to have come out on top in the end and to maintain the top spot on the overall leaderboard going into the finals in Sydney in December.
