ALMERIA is hosting Act 8 of the 2011 Extreme Sailing Series from yesterday (Wednesday) to Sunday, October 16.
Eleven Extreme 40 yacht teams are battling for victory not only in Spain, but with a ‘strategic eye’ on the end game to claim overall victory in the 2011 series at the final event in Singapore.
Spanish Tornado Olympic gold medallist and ISAF World Sailor of the Year in 2005 Anton Paz will race with last place Team Extreme on home soil with fellow Olympic bronze medallist Roland Gaebler as skipper: “I am really looking forward to returning to Almería after my first experience at the Extreme Sailing Series in 2009,” said Paz. “The stadium racing format is a real show and a big asset to our sport and Almería always welcomes the teams with open arms.”
