The 2015 Extreme Sailing Series is an eight event tour travelling through Asia, Europe, and Australia, where teams compete using the evenly-matched one design Extreme 40 catamaran on short-course tracks in front of the public.

Against the stunning backdrop of the Turkish mosques, Istanbul promises to put the fleet to the test and thrill spectators. The highlight of the week will come in the form of a long distance race down the iconic Bosphorus under the bridges that connect Asia and Europe.

Commentary and expert insight into the racing will be from Land Rover Global Brand Ambassador, Hannah White, and Extreme 40 veteran and former Series winner, Pete Cumming. Our live coverage includes a multi-camera feed and onboard camera, as well as analytics from our technical partner SAP. We will also provide the graphics feed separately for the duration of racing.
