The Extreme Sailing Series™ brings together the world's best sailors - Olympians, world champions, record holders and round the world sailors - racing against each other on identical 32-foot hydro-foiling catamarans on a global circuit spanning 3 continents.

The 'stadium racing' and short-style races pioneered by OC Sport for this circuit, brings the racing right in front of the spectators - elements of this format have since been used to varying degrees by the Olympics and the America's Cup World Series. A 'guest spot' on board each boat means our VIP guests experience an adrenalin-fuelled ride of their lives, as part of the crew during racing.

"This is Formula 1 on the sea, and the most exciting thing I have seen for a very long time."

Year on year media growth

Over 2 million spectators have attended the events since its inception. The media value of the Extreme Sailing Series has grown year on year since 2007, from €1.8m to €49.5 million in 2015, as the media output continues to deliver a high-value return, including an eight-part TV series distributed to broadcasters worldwide. The social media platforms have grown exponentially including over 2.4 million videos viewed on the official YouTube channel since 2010.
